A new survey is revealing the big differences between the Bay Area and New York when it comes to the electronic gadgets people use.

The "gadget census" by Sunnyvale's Retrevo Inc. found that in the Bay Area, the iPhone is king, but in New York, it's the BlackBerry.

New York has 56 percent more BlackBerries per capita than the Bay Area, 30 percent more iPads and 34-percent more e-readers.

On the other hand, the Bay Area had 23 percent more iPhones than New York, 94 percent more Mac OS users and 12 percent more people watching TV online.

The survey also found that the Los Angeles area, home to Hollywood, had the highest concentration of Blu-ray players.
