Last Christmas, we asked online merchants to give us a first assessment of the products that have bloomed at the foot of the trees.
Wii still in shape
First observation, the Wii is still the ideal gift for Christmas. And it is in its black version that it wins the greatest success. RueDuCommerce also specifies that, for 3 years, its sales have been increasing steadily from one year to the next. Difficult to say the same for the XBox, in decline, which ranks last in sales volume this year.
Samsung, the ultraleader
Televisions are also among the best sellers. And in this niche, Samsung clearly dominates. Online commerce remains the favorite field of the Korean who is “ultra-leader”, in the words of RueDuCommerce.
And, for the first time, a Led TV appears in the top sales of Pixmania. Although still expensive, TVs using this technology provide better image quality. 2010 should see the craze for LED TVs confirmed.
Milestone, an exclusive
Finally, for RueDuCommerce, the biggest success of the end of the year is the Motorola Milestone. It should be noted that this smartphone running Android is sold exclusively on the RueDuCommerce site. This does not prevent smartphones from remaining a safe bet for online merchants, particularly with the arrival of models on Android. The iPhone is starting to see real competitors appear, including the HTC HD2 and soon the Google Phone.
On the other hand, Internet users have distanced themselves from GPS and digital photo frames. Even in vogue two years ago, these devices are no longer a recipe.
