"Garbage survey".... because the results didn't turn out how I wanted them.

Garbage reporting. BGR switched the Blackberry and Android percentages around.

Once again, I don't know where people are getting that 52% of android users from. I clearly see 27%. Is everybody just not reading this?

Numbers like this before even the ANNOUNCEMENT of the product tell you nothing about how good a product will be. They tell you how strong the Apple brand is. This 41% number sounds dubious to me.

How many people from the Android camp keep going on and on about the Nexus Prime? You forgot about that didn't you.

Um did I read that right, 41% of mobile users want the new iPhone while $50 are staying with their current model? That's a total of 91% of iPhone users meaning that the 9% is whatever else. Ok yea they only asked iPhone users, not users of all platforms. God these studies suck ass

Apple is still searching for best quality and cheap components to assemble iPhone 5. So Apple will make more profit while Apple lovers pay premium price.

The end for fandroids is near. Once you guys lose marketshare android really has nothing to talk about. Just one run of the mill phone after another.

like always, taco is late to the conversation and completely oblivious to facts. Old taco has been slowly sliding back into place. Noone changes.. lol If android fails, where would apple get all their new features from?

Apple is an innovator and it eats you up inside. At the end of the day this flame wars don't matter. Apple will break all sales records over the holidays. Their market share will go up as long as the phone is available on additonal carriers. People will love the phone and the hype train will be bigger than ever. Fandroids will continue stalking Apple articles on PA and talk sh*t and look like idiots.

Islaves will continue to buy and support that which fools them and controls them, after all most islaves are so hopelessly dependent on the system, they will fight to defend it!

Of course, when an article mixes up the statistics provided by the press release, Taco willingly believes the mixed up numbers over the original. But when I point out a weird trend in iPhone sales, and point this out by reposting APPLE'S sales claims from APPLE'S press releases on APPLE'S website, Taco accuses me of making up numbers. Good job, Taco. You've successfully moved to Opposite Land.

I hope apple drops the ball big with the 4S..... They are only screwing themselves again by not innovating a new product... This has f**k up written all over.... Sad to see them do but at the same time they deserve it for not stepping up.


Posts: 701; Member since: Jun 07, 2011

actually i dont think apple is screwing themselves over at all!! Isheep will still buy the product regardless, the only ones screwing themselves are the customers who will buy the slightly tweaked phone..

Aw, you can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Forty percent of all people know that! That say it wouldn't surprise me if 41% percent of north Americans are indeed stupid,easily influenced by brainwashing pr techniques and like buying the same product again and again just with a different name

InMobi is an advertising network agency. They are a huge proponent of HTML5 as well as Apple Inc. It is not surprising that they would lay the tracks for another hype. Sheeple marketing is always the main premise for independent organizations of this type. It would be my guess that many of these individuals were already iPhone fans. I have been involved with polls of this type in the past. They pre-scan thousands of individuals for the survey by way of questionaires. . Once they choose their candidates of choice, they continue with their study. The questions are vague as much as they are direct. The questions are mostly pointed in the direction of the advertiser's client. However, the candidates have no idea why they were chosen or what the poll was for. These candidates are thrown a bunch of questions that have nothing to do with any certain subject. The agency compiles the questions and randomly includes them in the questionaire. It asks a few questions that have to do with their clients but mostly are mixed in with a bunch of irrelevant questions to make it look good. Then the agency takes a tally on the relevant questions and releases their results. This is why I don't like independent studies conducted by such agencies as InMobi. John B.

if this turns out to be true, then its nothing less but a tragic fact..PEOPLE ARE SO F!CKIN DUMB! I tell you there are devices already out there, that are better than this next iPhone, not to mention HTC vigor, nexus prime and the likes, that are coming on the way. so not fair..I'm really getting sick of the rotten apple :(
