Yankee Group: Holiday shoppers are expected to snap up mobile devices en masse
Mobile devices account for three of the top five devices that US consumers plan to buy this holiday season, according to a forecast from Yankee Group, a Boston-based research and advisory firm. For the most part, this gadget boom will be powered by men. One exception: E-readers such as the Amazon Kindle. Women outnumber men in their intention to purchase e-readers.
