iPhone 4S, iPad, and Kindle Fire top holiday wish lists (infographic)

iPhone 4S, iPad, and Kindle Fire top holiday wish lists (infographic)
The iPhone 4S has been the usual phenomenon that you'd expect from a new iPhone. It has been selling in big numbers, and although there had been reports that Apple cut component orders because of lower demand, it's looking more like the reduction in orders was more because Apple over-ordered parts. A new survey has the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 as the most desired tech items on holiday wish lists. 

iPhone 4S, iPad, and Kindle Fire top holiday wish lists (infographic)
Social community Soda-head conducted a survey of 1150 people in order to find out what people want the most for holiday gifts. Money/gift cards and vacations were at the top of the list overall, but electronic devices came in solidly at number 3. And, in the electronics category, the iPhone 4S was the most wanted device from 39% of respondents. The iPad 2 came in second at 31% and the Kindle Fire third at 17%. 

A bit more surprising is that 41% of respondents actually think it's a good idea to buy someone mobile apps as a gift, which seems a bit odd to us. As far as tablets specifically, the iPad is the most wanted at 65%, with the Kindle Fire second at 24%, and the Nook Color way back at 11%. 

What do you want for the holidays?

Hopefully not a bunch of comments saying this survey is flawed and making excuses this time.

This is only a wish list. Let's see how many can buy those "high price low quality" iGadgets.

Love my iPhone 4s. I'm thinking of switching the rest of my family from their Androids to the 4S.

Did you read about adobe's announcement. Mobile flash is dead. HTML5 is the future now.

Mobile flash may not be getting any future developments but every time I use my tablet to watch a flash video i'm reminded that it's definitely not dead.

Also, "HTML5 is the future now" makes no sense. Is it the standard now? Or is it the future? It cannot be both.

Using your logic 3G would be "dead" since all carriers are more interested in developing 4G. Does that make your iPhone dead? No.

Every time I run flash on my Acer A500 I watch the battery drain, and then thankfully Flash crashes.

That's unfortunate... I don't think flash has ever crashed on my GT10.1

I also get an average of 20-30 hours of battery life so I don't know about that either.

I'm not familiar with the specs of the A500 but my guess is it's one of the less powerful tablets spec-wise?

I like having flash? And Widgets? And all of my apps I've already bought from android? Plus I think the screen on my GT 10.1 is better than that of the I pad IMO.

can you find exactly where Adobe themselves said "mobile flash is dead".

I remember "we are not going to add new features to mobile flash, but we are giving it full tech support, bug fixes, and the like. Since we are not updating it, we no longer need a full crew to just fix bugs, so we are gonna let some people go"

But you know, since Android is busting that 50% mark in smartphone sales, that means well more than half of the world uses a phone with flash capability when you add in blackberry support too. non flash smart phones are still the minority.

BTW, HTML5 isnt even a standard yet. It wont be till next year at the earliest. its a BETA. And it BARELY runs on iOS5, that JUST got the ability to use it.

Should i start keeping tabs of everything you say thats wrong and spam it on every thread? I dont know if i have time to write that much every day.

Taco there's no flaw in this survey. every one wants an iphone.. Even where I come from. I won't show my android fanboyism and comment on why an iphone is bad, personally I think the 4s is a great device but I prefer loads of customization.. Still 7-10 of my friends will get an iphone (if they had the cash) over anyother phone.

@taco. Iphone4s, yes. But I really don't know about icloud. Icloud messed up my music library. I got better off turning icloud completely off.

That's absolutely impossible. There are never any issues with the iPhone that's why they have the highest customer satisfaction rating... didn't taco tell you?
