However, Fab CEO–Jason Goldberg–said,  “The tactile touch experience of the iPad more closely resembles being able to physically ‘touch’ a product like physical-world shopping versus the web which can feel more distant when browsing with a mouse or track-pad.”

The Fab ‘web experience’ allows users to browse across its sales and products, and now, the company is ready to launch an application for Apple’s third generation “Retina Display” Tablet. However, the app might take few months of time to be launched.

In terms of revenue, the company has reported that iPad users are going to account twice than non-iPad users in coming two-years revenue. Presently, only 15% of Fab users are iPad users and those customers are expected to contribute 25% of revenue to the company over the next two years.

The company is basically focusing to PC which do not have “touchscreen” unlike to iPad or non-iPad Tablets. The online site is somewhat going to mimic the Tablet experience through layout choices and navigational tools for traditional PC users.

Indeed, the report might be fruitful for other online website retailers too. It’s quite obvious that there is an awesome future ahead for these retailers.
