March 14, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Lots of predictions have already been made as to how Apple’s newest iPad would create records.

A new study has revealed possibly tremendous changes which might be seen in the tablet market following the arrival of the latest iteration of the iPad.

The survey by folks at ChangeWave Research has stated that demand for the new iPad has already started to shake up the corporate tablet market. The company found this after surveying 1,604 business IT buyers.

As much as 22 percent of companies revealed that they will be buying tablets for their staff during the second quarter of 2012. The significant part is that, about 84 percent of companies are opting to purchase iPads during that period.

This is indeed a good result as an impressive 7 percent hike would be attained by Apple compared with the previous survey. ChangeWave points out that this is the utmost level of corporate iPad demand ever seen in their surveys.

The survey also points out that the arrival of the new iPad has affected the business purchases of tablets from other manufacturers such as Samsung, HP, Asus, RIM, Dell, Motorola and Lenovo. It is predicted that the tablet manufacturers, other than Apple, will see decline in sales in the coming quarter.

As per the stats, tablet manufacturers like Samsung (8%), HP (4%), Asus (3%), Dell (3%), BlackBerry (3%) and so on saw a decrease in their sales. In addition, the survey also shows that most of the companies would like to buy tablets that come riding the AT&T and Verizon networks.
