Ask a child between the ages of 6 and twelve what he/she wants from Santa Claus this year, and there’s a 48% chance they’ll answer “iPad”. It seems Apple’s tablet is the hottest toy on the market this holiday season, and bar the Nintendo WiiU nothing comes close to iOS devices this winter. Out of the top 5 most wanted gadgets, 4 of them run iOS, with the iPod touch, iPad mini and iPhone proving to be popular too. So popular in fact, that even all the other smartphones put together don’t reach the level of desirability achieved by Apple’s portable multimedia devices.
Teenagers’ desires are slightly different (most likely because they already have iPhones and iPods):
The iPad still tops the charts, but there’s far lower levels of enthusiasm for any product from the adolescent age-range. Despite Oprah Winfrey’s best efforts, and undeniable cool factor, the Surface only tempts 3% of teenagers. These results come from nielsen.com.
