Searches For Ereaders And Tablets Are Spiking In Ireland

The Google Trends graph below shows the dramatic spike in searches for ereaders and tablets in Ireland over the past few weeks and months.

  • Blue = Kindle
  • Green = Google Nexus
  • Gold = iPad (excl mini)
  • Red = Kobo (all devices)
  • Purple = Kindle Fire (as separate entity)

As with last Christmas (the spike at the start of the chart) searches for Kindle and iPad dominate but other devices are starting to make an appearance in particular the Google nexus tablet which is rivalling the Kindle itself for search traffic.
