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.
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%.
