Winners and non-winners:

The NOOK segment (including digital content, devices and accessories), had revenues of $125 million for the nine-week holiday period, decreasing 60.5% as compared to a year ago.

"We are pleased with our holiday sales results..." said Michael P. Huseby, Chief Executive Officer of Barnes & Noble, Inc.

Apple bruised as shoppers choose cheaper tablet computers as gifts
iPads won 38% of the market against 56% for tablets powered by Google's Android software, such as Tesco's runaway hit, Hudl

Tesco sells more than 400,000 Hudl tablets in three months

Demand was so high that some stores ran out, and they were being offered on eBay for £180 - a third more than the retail price of £119.
