    Hi, I am a student at San Jose State University and I’m doing a project about tablet user experience for owners of devices like iPads, Xoom, Galaxy tab, etc. My research has led me to think tablets are changing the way people browse the internet and use other devices.Can you please help me by filling out a survey about tablet usage. It will only take 2-3 minutes to complete. Your help will be appreciated. Click the link below if you want to help a student complete a project. Thank you for your time.

    Be careful, most of the users here own real tablet PCs with pen input to take notes, draw, earn money, thus useful productive devices.

    Your survey is meant for users who own gadgets like the iPad or XOOM, expensive media consuming devices with few use.

    So you should clarify your target audience.

    Some of the questions could have been worded better. I would leave room for comments after each question.

    I looked it over and it's obviously biased to towards the iPad demographic. For instance, there doesn't appear to be any indication that some users have had tablet input devices since the Palm Pilot and that there are applications for inventory control, food service and even parcel delivery. Tablet input for creative production doesn't appear to be included, such as all the professionals using Wacom USB tablets in the photo, graphics and printing industries.

    I agree that the survey is "biased to towards the iPad demographic", and does not take into account the way most of us here in this forum use our tabletPCs, but he did state that his project is about the experience for "owners of devices like iPads, Xoom, Galaxy tab", and how they browse the internet etc. If the study is only about the way the (new category of) tablets change media consumption etc., then the questions are fine. If I do a study about motorcycles, I won't include questions about how the capacity of a car's trunk rates as a deal breaker...

    Sadly most studies that are done in the "tablet" field seems to have this focus on the consumer devices though, would be nice if some studies would look beyond the iPad&co horizon.
