It's virtually guaranteed that Apple will sell several boatloads of iPads this Christmas, as nearly half of U.S. children are pestering parents to pull out their credit cards and splash the cash for the tablet that rules over us.
Nielsen research data confirms it's an Apple Christmas once again, revealing that 48 percent of children aged 6-12 in the US want an iPad while 39 percent will go wild for a Wii.
What else do America's children want? More Apples. Thirty-six percent of kids say they want an iPod touch, iPad mini (36 percent) or iPhone (33 percent).
