Consumers have revealed their holiday gift wishes according to a poll conducted by, an opinion based social community. And it’s good news for Apple.

As the tablet wars heat up and consumers are presented with dozens of iOS and Android-based options, the clear winner on consumer’s holiday wish lists is the Apple iPad 2, as 65% of those wanting a tablet hope to receive the top-selling device on the market. The latest entrants in the tablet market from Amazon and Barnes & Noble have not yet made a significant impact, as only 24% of respondents are hoping to receive a Kindle Fire and 11% desire the recently announced Nook Tablet.
Even though the iPad 2 is leading the tablet pack, Apple’s tablet is not the top overall tech choice for the holidays, as 39% of respondents hope to receive an iPhone 4S, compared to 31% hoping for an iPad 2.  The Amazon Kindle Fire is the tech item of choice for 17% of respondents and 13% are hoping that Santa brings Xbox Kinect down the chimney.
