According to a new survey by Nielsen, 44% of kids 6 to 12 years old are interested in owning an iPad, and iPod Touch came in next at 30% and 27% want at iPhone.
Here’s how the tech items stack up:
All things considered, video game consoles are pretty low on the list, which is a good indicator of where we’re headed. Why own a player that can only handle one brand of game, when you can own a device that allows you to play multiple games, including Facebook games and connect with friends while you do it?
Looking at everyone over 13, iPad interest drops to only 24%, but this is still an increase over last year.
And check out the e-Reader. It ranks near the bottom of the list for kids, but third highest for adults. But when you look at actual percentage, it’s 17% vs 18%, so either way, e-Readers aren’t doing all that well. Not surprising since, once again, a tablet can function as an e-Reader and still allow you to shop online while you’re waiting for your lunch order.
