Prediction for top Christmas present

You can't even buy it in Sweden yet, but the Swedish Retail Institute has picked the computer tablet - like Apple's iPad - as its Christmas present of the year.

Every year since 1988 the institute has picked out the item that they think will be found under a lot of Swedish christmas trees - and also the item that brings something new to our world.

Emma Hernell, analyst at the Retail Institute says that this new flat little computer meets these critera - but that there is no saying for certain whether it will be a big seller.

"Sometimes we are right" she says "but other years we have tipped some real flops - like the bread maker."
