Commenting on the findings Satya Sundar Mohanty, Senior Manager, Demand-side Research, CMR stated, “Indian consumers’ increasing preference for Tablets and the country’s younger demographics have added to the adoption of mobile internet access devices. With changing consumer lifestyles, the India market presents a favourable opportunity for vendors.”


Sumanta Mukherjee, General Manager, CMR DSR & InfoTech Practices added, “Consumers are driving segmentation of the market away from one-size-fits-all models toward different devices available at distinct price points. Interestingly, satisfaction seems to peak for tablets in 5000 to 10000 price range as well as 20,000 and above price bracket.”

Apalak Ghosh, Lead Analyst, Emerging Technologies Research, CMR remarked “A growing desire for choice in functionality, price and device ecosystem supported by attractive combinations of size and other features are what customers are looking while deciding on their choice of devices.”
