RichRelevance cited on Smart Money's "10 Things Your iPad Won't Say"
Apple users tend to be bigger spenders than other tablet owners — they forked over an average $123 in purchases on their iPads and iPhones, compared to an average $101 spent by Android users, according to a separate survey by RichRelevance, a personalized product recommendation company.
The portability of the iPad, combined with the overall pleasant browsing experience allows for more instant gratification, says Darren Vengroff, chief scientist for RichRelevance. “There’s no remembering to go to the mall on the weekends to buy those jeans you liked,” he says. People tend to use their tablets in relaxed environments like their homes, which might cause them to spend more, according to a report by Adobe Digital Index, which found that tablet users spend 20% more per purchase than people shopping on computers. Tablet owners also tend to be more affluent than most online consumers, according to the report.
