US consumers plan to buy fewer gadgets

So says a survey of 4,427 consumers conducted by ChangeWave, anyway.


Although who these consumers are, what kinds of electronics they’ve recently purchased, and how many actually plan their gadget sprees 90 days in advance don’t appear to have been taken into consideration at all, Seeking Alpha feels the data is strong enough to warn investors of rough roads ahead. The consumer electronics sector, they say, is getting "whacked" and "slammed . . . with a vengeance," partly because fewer respondents plan to buy an iPod or cell phone within the next three months.

Hmm. Either the UMPC blues aren’t limited to just UMPCs or a good deal of those surveyed are happily using their iPod touches and iPhones. Tough call.
