iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and Kindle Fire Top Christmas Wish List

When it comes to tech gadgets, the most wished for gifts for the upcoming holiday season are Apple and Amazon's latest devices.

A recent survey (opens in new tab) conducted by the SodaHead website, asked visitors to register their preference for gifts they are hoping to receive this Christmas, with the results being posted in a comprehensive infographic.

Apparently, almost 70% of the respondents don't really want a gift from Santa, they would prefer money or gift cards (39%) or vacations (30%).

Nevertheless, from the people who do wish to unwrap a gift on Christmas morning, 21% would like to get a tech gadget and 10% would be happy with clothes or jewellry.

Of the gadget lovers, the most enthusiastic are Apple fans with perhaps unsurprisingly the latest iPhone 4S coming top of the wish list with 39% of the votes, noy too far behind though is the iPad 2 with 31%. Amazon's recent venture into the tablet market, the Kindle Fire, gained 17% of the preferences, while 13% of the respondents wish for an Xbox Kinect.

Half of the youngest demographic (or kids) decided they would prefer Santa to skip on the plastic toys this year and instead bring them video games (51%).
