I think it is true, based on my experiences. The IT students in my classes tend to favor Android as their personal devices (some also have work-issued BlackBerry devices). I also had two classmates with personal BlackBerry devices. Nobody in the IT classes I've taken had iPhones.
The iPhones and iPads I've spotted at school belonged to students who were not IT majors. The IT majors also prefer Android tablets.
My classmates also use PCs, not Macs. Most are into gaming. Several have built their own water cooled overclocked gaming boxes. LAN parties are some of their favorite pastimes.
