Glossary » early adopter

early adopter

a person who chooses to purchase or use relatively new technology before it is fully embraced by the mass market. Early adopters are therefore people who have a stronger need for the technology (such as a specific application that doesn’t apply broadly), a lower reluctance to use it (such as techno-geeks), or the ability to overcome barriers to adopting it (such as cost or a difficult user interface).
