Evidently iPads are now mainstream, and netbooks are going "niche".
Morgan Stanley has issued a new report to their clients that shows the impact of the iPad and other tablets on the broader gadget market — and it looks like the netbook growth curve is "falling off into oblivion". As the netbook market was already operating within an environment of heavy competition and slim margins, I would have to agree that Apple has successfully ushered in the new era of tablet computing, with the market following right along. Ironically, the next product for the iPad to cannibalize is the iPod touch, followed by e-book readers.
