Kindle Fire trumps iPhone 4S

Three Apple-related search terms have placed among the fastest rising in Google's Zeitgeist charts for 2011. The annual effort catalogs the popularity of various searches, as well as broad trends. The fastest-rising Apple search term in the top 10 overall was "iPhone 5," coming in at number six. "Steve Jobs" was ninth, while "iPad2" closed out the 10 leaders.

"iPhone 5" grew 1,658 percent between 2010 and 2011; the highest traffic hit the week of September 25th, a week before the iPhone 4S was announced instead. By contrast, "Steve Jobs" rose 982 percent, and "iPad 2" was up 939 percent.

Narrowing down to fastest-rising consumer electronics searches, the iPhone 4S was beat out by Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet. Following behind it were "Sidekick 4g," "Hp Touchpad," "Spb Shell 3d," "Ipad 2," "Htc Sensation," "Samsung Nexus Prime," "Sony Ngp" and finally "Ipad 3." The iPad 3, notably, has not even been formally unveiled, but merely expected by Apple fans, and hinted at in the media.
