Two separate consumer surveys came to the same conclusion: the iPad is on top of everyone's gift wish list. 3D TVs? Not so much.
Fortunately, your chances of getting an iPad are pretty good -- as both of those studies also said that people plan to spend more on gifts this holiday season, mostly on consumer gadgets, compared to 2009.
Indeed, a report on planned holiday spending by Retrevo said that people are willing to give up their holiday travel so they can buy cool electronics. Of the 1,000-plus respondents, 16% said they will spend more on electronics while 28% will spend less on travel.
The No. 1 desire? A tablet -- and that means the iPad for most people. "Unless Android gets it together in the tablet department, Apple could have a very good holiday season. When the study asked what was on consumers' wish lists this year, the product on the top of most people's electronics wish lists was a tablet followed closely by a laptop, HDTV set, and smartphone. Netbooks and 3DTVs were lowest on the lists," the Retrevo report said.
The thing that Is most shocking for
me is that people want iPads the most. iPads aren't even that great, and it isn't even talking about the iPad 2. I don't see why people don't have the 3d tv as their top item on thir wishlist.
