ChangeWave recently conducted a study of nearly 4,000 US mobile users regarding their habits which has shown numerous trends in America. The biggest winner of the survey? Smartphones as nearly 16% of all those interviewed stated that they were soon going to pick up a smartphone within the next few days. Another very important point that has to be taken into consideration is the fact that Apple as well as HTC seem to be the leaders when it comes to the smartphone trend in America. According to the report, within just 3 months, both Apple as well as HTC managed to increase sales of their phone by around 50%.
Says a spokesperson of ChangeWave, “In one of the biggest conducted surveys in America, 4,028 consumers were asked for their opinions regarding the mobiles the currently use or which they would be likely to use in future and Apple and HTC, both, emerged as clear favorites. From March 2010 till June 2010, there was nearly a 50% increase in sales of both companies. While Apple and HTC both saw profits, Motorola and Rim noticed a decline in sales in the same period. This proves to be good news for the BlackBerry 6 ad the Unlocked Motorola Milestone Droid ( X ). however we cannot say the same for Palm Pre Unlocked handset as according to our survey, they failed to register a single percentage point.”
Recently, Apple has been creating waves due to the wonderful unlocked iPhone 4 that was recently released. However, this phone has flopped as it has been discovered that if the phone is held in a certain angle, no network can be picked up. This has resulted in Apple having to recall some of the mobile phones that were issued. This has resulted in favor of the Droid as now it has less competition as compared to before. In spite of Apple having to recall some of its mobile phones, they have still been able to beat out other phones in the survey.
