The holiday gift-giving season is almost upon us and guess what is the most-wanted gift this season?
Jonathan Geller, who got his start blogging for Engadget, has a popular website, BGR, that covers consumer electronics. BGR recently reported on a survey performed by Gazelle, a reseller of pre-owned consumer electronics. Gazelle’s survey found that around 30% of consumers want an electronic device for a gift.
When they broke devices down into types, they found that almost half of those responding want a smartphone while the other half want smart watches, tablets, or laptops.
The two most sought after gifts were the Samsung Galaxy and the iPhone, at 23% and 22%, respectively, followed by 17% wanting an Apple Watch, 16% wanting an iPad, and 14% wanting a MacBook. Close to 70% of those responding to the Gazelle survey wanted some kind of Apple product.
