The reports also state that Governments across many countries even discourage their people from using the tablet. One good example of this is China which is reportedly a “Weak Area” of Apple. Apple also had to face some trademark infringement issue in China. Some Chinese electronic goods manufacturers are even making a mockery of Apple products(Read about the Apple gas stoves here).
People in countries such as Zimbabwe, Kenya among other countries don't even know the existence of iPads. This shows that Apple has failed in it's mission to ensure good reachability for it's gadgets. Industry insiders state that this trend proves that Apple products are not preferred in various countries of the world. The industry insiders also claim that Apple's products are targeted at only a elite few & not at the common man. This factor can work against Apple itself.
The new iPad has also been rejected by various fundamentalist groups across the world terming it as “A Cultural Shock!”. The high price tag that is associated with Apple gadgets are also causing a loss in popularity, say experts.
Whatever the situation, Apple has to sincerely consider making it's products a lot more “user friendly” & “affordable” in future.
