Will you buy an iPhone 5?
Is it just me, or does everyone have iPhone 5 fever? We know that love for iPhone 4 is far from over, but iPhone 5 rumors are alive and hopping all over the web.
A quick look at iPhone5 on Twitter and it’s clear that many people are talking about the much anticipated new device from Apple.
A survey of 2,200 consumers taken in August by ChangeWave for RBC Capital Markets shows 31 percent of respondents very or somewhat likely to buy the iPhone 5 — significantly more than the 25 percent who said they were very or somewhat likely to buy the iPhone 4 ahead of its launch. And that percentage is quite a bit higher among current iPhone owners; 66 percent of existing iPhone users say they are very or somewhat likely to buy the iPhone 5.
In other words, we could see a very large iPhone upgrade cycle, come October — large enough that RBC has raised its estimate for fiscal 2012 iPhone sales to 110 million, up from 105 million.
How about you? How likely is it that you will purchase an iPhone 5 for yourself or someone else?
