All Kids Want for Christmas Is an iPad [STATS]

iPad Gift ImageLike many of our readers (we suspect), the device American kids want most this holiday is an iPad.

According to a recent survey from Nielsen, 31% of U.S. children ages 6 to 12 want an iPad over any other electronic device in the next six months, followed by a computer (29%) and iPod touch (29%).

The study, which was conducted in October, includes 17 different kinds of popular electronic devices currently on the market, including TVs, game consoles and various kinds of mobile phones.

Only 11% said they most wanted an e-reader, which renders this recent commercial from Amazon a little less compelling.

Those over the age of 18 express the most interest in buying a computer (20%) over the next six months, followed by a TV (19%), smartphone (19%) and iPad (18%). E-readers prove slightly more popular (15%) among an older crowd, while gaming devices are significantly less.

Although it’s got a hefty price tag, the good news for parents of hopeful iPad owners is that the device should be widely available, unlike many of the “it” gifts of yesteryear; according to Digitimes, China-based manufacturer Foxconn has ramped up production in order to meet holiday demand.
