Importers kicked off 2013 eyeing Android and 3G/4G tablet PCs, 3G and smartphones, and various accessories for iDevices, including leather cases for iPad, spurred by pre-CES buzz on these products.

Android tablets generated 58 percent more inquiries in January 2013 to recover from a slow December. A YoY comparison underscores the popularity of the list's perennial number one, with inquiries jumping 93 percent.

Also in January, PC cases for iPhone and in-dash DVD players reentered the top 20 on the back of three-digit growth rates inquiry-wise.
