Post hoc ergo propter hoc
I suspect tablet ownership is the easiest way for Google Analytics to measure affluence.
That said, my next e-commerce site has an iPhone/iPad specific interface for when users browse with those devices. I think it's important enough to test, and no, I don't think the interface should be the same as a traditional mouse/keyboard interface.
they can't understand the hype either
I don't understand the hype around Justin Bieber either, but I can't pretend it's not a multi-billion dollar a year industry.
I don't like the current crop of touch screen interfaces for e-mail or anything beyond *very* basic web browsing. I find them maddening. But lots of people love them, and since we're in the business of selling lots of things to lots of people, it warrants a good look.
