Most People Want a Tablet or a Smartphone for Christmas, Says Avira

Avira, company that offers home and business security software solutions and is best known for its free antivirus product, ran a survey with the aim of finding out what IT gadget people would want to get for the holidays. Unsurprisingly, the results showed that most people would like to get a tablet or a smartphone from Santa. The results did not show if they want an iOS-powered tablet/smartphone or an Android-powered one.

Out of the 1,246 respondents who took part in Avira’s survey, 29.86% said they want a tablet for the holidays and 28.09% said they want a smartphone. Looking down the percentages, we find that 10.83% said they want a network-enabled TV and 7.14% want a gaming console for the holidays.


The survey also revealed that a large number of respondents would not want to get a gadget as a gift. Out of all the respondents, 24.08% said they dislike tech gadgets as a gift. I have to say that this is not exactly surprising – serious tech heads would much rather get the gadget they want on their own rather than rely on someone to gift it to them.

Getting back to the results of the survey, here’s how the participants responded to the question “What new IT gadget would you like for the holidays” (grouped according to percentage):
  • 29.86% - Tablet PC
  • 28.09% - Smartphone
  • 24.08% - I dislike tech gadgets as a gift.
  • 10.83% - Network-enabled TV
  • 7.14% - Gaming Console

PR Manager with Avira, Elisabeth Rothbart, had this to comment on the results of the survey:
"It was very interesting to find out what gadgets people are expecting and equally interesting to hear that 1 out of 4 do not want those types of gifts during the holidays. To ensure all customers always have a fun time with their gifts, we would like to remind them to make sure the devices they do receive are secured through quality security products."
