The below infographic shows some key findings from a recently conducted survey on what consumers’ shopping habits would be this holiday season. Do you think they were right?
"The results of a new Tech Bargains survey were recently released, and they show that 53% of consumers will spend more than half of their holiday shopping budgets on electronic devices. Of the tech gifts people expect to buy, tablets are, not surprisingly, the most-wanted items of the year.
What is surprising is exactly which tablets customers are expecting to buy. 33% of those surveyed expect to buy Google’s Nexus 7 tablet, while only 30% expect to buy an iPad. The iPad Mini and Kindle Fire HD are tied in the survey, with 24% of respondents expecting to buy each, and 12% will be buying the Microsoft Surface hybrid laptop/tablet device.

Recognizing this trend, Verizon and Amazon will offer a suite of Amazon-owned shopping apps directly to customers on certain Verizon Wireless Android smartphones. Retail apps like those offered by Amazon are another way wireless users can customize their smartphones and bring the convenience of online shopping right to their mobile device.
