iPhone and iPad among eBay's "top-shopped" items in 2010


eBay listed its "Top Shopped" items of 2010 this week, and the iPhone 4 rose to the top, beating out classic toys like Barbie and Hot Wheels. While the iPhone 4 took first place, the iPad was not far behind, occupying fifth spot behind Barbie, Hot Wheels and military jackets. Interestingly enough, this iOS duo are the only two electronic devices to make the top ten list, which is heavily dominated by pop culture including icons like The Beatles, popular events like the World Cup and fads like Silly Bandz.

Together, the iPhone 4 (1.6 M related items sold) and iPad (600 K related items sold) accounted for over 2.2 million related items sold. This "Top Shopped" list is compiled from US eBay listings that include the key terms, like iPad, in the title and were active between January 1, 2010 to December 19, 2010. Anyone who has casually shopped eBay for an iPhone 4 can easily corroborate these findings. At any given time, the sheer number of auctions for the iPhone 4 is staggering, especially when you add in the copious listings for iPhone 4 accessories.
