thumb_500x_mac-tablet-concept-2In a survey by analysts at RBC Capital Markets, 21% of respondents said they would be interested in buying an Apple Tablet, even though a) no Tablet actually exists yet and b) they’re not sure exactly what it would do or look like and c) they’re not actually sure if or when it’s coming.

Further proof of Apple’s Halo effect: they said they would happily pay between $500 and $700 for the device.

To give this some context, according to SlashGear, a similar study in April 2007 showed that 9% of respondents said they would be interested in buying an iPhone prior to the smartphone’s launch.   And look what happened there.
