Kids Want iPads For Christmas

According to The Nielsen Company, kids want iPads for Christmas. The research company did a survey of American kids in October and found that 31% of 6-12 year olds were interesting in iPads, above the iPod Touch, the Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP. Only 11% of kids in this age group wanted an eReader.

The desire went down slightly among older kids. But still, while kids 13 years of age and older would rather have a TV, a computer or a smartphone, 18% of them wanted an iPad. Interestingly, 15% of these kids wanted an eReader. Perhaps eReaders are better aimed at older kids.
