48% of U.S. children want an iPad this Christmas

The
annual festive holiday survey by Nielsen has revealed that the iPad has risen
in popularity by 17% since 2010, allowing Apple to claim four out of the top five
most wanted Christmas presents.

At
39%, and coming in second on kids’ wishlists is Nintendo’s latest offering; the
Wii U. However, with the iPod Touch and the iPad Mini joint third at 36% and
the iPhone coming in fifth with 33%, it is safe to say that Apple have
dominated Christmas lists this year.

“Apple’s
dominance in the US Christmas market looks likely to be replicated in the UK
this season as the company’s popularity and product range increases,” comments
Greg Poulson of Freetimers.
