Consumers have revealed their holiday gift wishes according to a poll conducted by SodaHead.com, 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.
