For now at least, the iPad (AAPL) is maintaining an iPod-like grip on the U.S. tablet market. ChangeWave's latest survey of North American consumers finds 73% of tablet buyers saying they plan to buy an iPad. A mere 8% say they're getting a Kindle Fire (AMZN), and just 6% say they'll buy a Samsung (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy Tab. 81% of new iPad owners say they're very satisfied with their device, compared with 71% of iPad 2 owners, 46% of Galaxy Tab owners, and 41% of Kindle Fire owners.
