If sales data from Black Friday is any indication, it’s quite likely that you’re going to be getting an iPad for Christmas.
The iPad Air and the iPad Mini were both huge sellers at Wal-Mart, Target, and Best Buy this Black Friday, according to Infoscout, a market research firm that analyzed purchases made by about 50,000 shoppers.
At Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Target Corp., the iPad Mini 16GB and iPad Air 16GB were the top sellers, respectively, according to market research firm InfoScout, which tracked the spending of 50,000 in-store shoppers, mostly ages 21 through 55, on Thursday and Friday.
The various iPad products represented 18% of Target’s sales, said InfoScout CEO Jared Schrieber. The iPad Mini alone accounted for 6.5% of Wal-Mart’s sales on Black Friday.
