When asked what they would purchase in the next 3 months, smart phones and tablet PCs are in high demands. The number of respondents buying smart phones and PC tablets is forecast to grow by 5% and 10% respectively.

When broken down according to levels of income, 20% of respondents whose incomes are between 15,000 -35,000 THB possess smart phones. Meanwhile, 1 in every 4 of those who earn higher but less than 75,500 THB per month owns a smart phone.

The number of owners is only 5% more in the income group of 75,000 THB or higher. While those who are making less than 15,000 THB account for less than 10% of the sampled population.

Surprisingly, the number of anyone possessing a tablet PC between those who earn 35,000 THB or more and those whose salaries are higher than 75,000 THB are not that different. They account for 7% of their income groups. The figures are even lower for people, who earn less than the above mentioned, which are barely above 2%.

When asked what they would purchase in the next 3 months, smart phones and tablet PCs are in high demands. The number of respondents buying smart phones and PC tablets is forecast to grow by 5% and 10% respectively.

However, a notebook tops the list of all IT items with a growing demand of 26%. In terms of gender, women are prone to buying laptops and smart phones more than men of the same age group. Older people tend to purchase a laptop while younger ones are in favor of iPads and smart phones.
