Default Sorry, But the iPad is Not 'Killing' Netbook Sales

And IDC is now forecasting that "mininotebook" (i.e. netbooks and sub-12-inch machines) will sell 45.6 million units in 2011 and 60.3 million in 2013. If I remember the numbers from 2009, they were 10 percent of all PCs, or about 30 million units. Explain again how the iPad will beat that. Please. Even the craziest iPad sales predictions are a small percentage of that.

IDC also says that "the current slowdown is not because of the iPad, it is simply a combination of seasonality and the law of big numbers" and that the company "doen't expect much in the way of iPads stealing way sales from netbooks."

Claiming the iPad is capturing netbook sales makes about as much sense as claiming the iPad is cannibalizing iPhone sales. Where's the business knowledge on market & product segmentation here?

That is ludicrous... Wired summed it up best: the iPad doesn't fit into the notebook, netbook, or iPhone categories as it can't replace these devices. It's instead expanded (or created) a relatively small category just for content consumption.
