In 2012, 48 percent of children age 6 to 12 will ask Santa for an iPad, according to a new survey from Nielsen. Each year Nielsen conducts two surveys, one of children 6 to 12, the other of teens 13 and older to find out what they really want for Christmas (or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa). On Tuesday, the company released the results of its 2012 survey of 3,000 kids. It found that the answer this year is no different from it was in 2011 and 2010: Kids want Apple products. Specifically, the iPad. The iPad craving starts young. This year, 48 percent of kids age 6 to 12 said they were interested in getting an iPad in the next six months. That's up from 44 percent who said they wanted an iPad in 2011. A full-sized iPad starts at $499.
