Currys and PC World’s Christmas 2012 Top Ten Tech Gifts mention Apple mystery product – iPad Mini perhaps?
This is the third year running that the Apple iPad has been top of the Christmas bestseller list at Currys and PC World. In fact, such is Apple’s popularity that Currys and PC World are predicting that the only product likely to knock the iPad off the number 1 spot is Apple’s latest launch, a product still to be revealed, but that the tech buyers are predicting will go straight to the top of customers’ wish lists.
The Kindle e-reader is holding strong at number 2 for the second consecutive year, this time with its Touch device. Last year Currys and PC World saw a 700% increase in sales of Kindles during the Christmas shopping period, with a device being sold every three seconds in the week before Christmas.
The iPad isn’t the only tablet to feature in the top ten, however. Currys & PC World predict that the Kindle Fire tablet, due to launch late autumn, will become a Top bestseller by Christmas. Meanwhile, Google is expected to set the tablet market alight with its Nexus 7, coming in at number 3 and set to be one of the hottest gifts this Christmas.
What is very interesting is that at number 4 there is an Apple mystery product with a price to be confirmed. Is this the much rumoured iPad Mini?
Also number 6 shows the Kindle Fire so does this mean Amazon are finally launching it in the UK? They certainly didn’t mention it at all at their annual Christmas Wish List event yesterday.
What are your thoughts on the list?
