9% wants an iPhone

Posted on Tuesday, June 19 2007 @ 01:00:16 CEST by

A new study by M:Metrics reveals that almost one in ten U.S. cell phone users has a strong interest in Apple's upcoming iPhone.
Poll results show about 9 percent of the 11,064 mobile phone users surveyed were inclined to purchase the highly touted iPhone, set for release June 29. That translates to about 19 million people when projected out, based on the U.S. Census, according to M:Metrics, a research company that tracks mobile phone use.

That's "an impressive figure, when you consider that the installed base of most high-end devices rarely approaches 1 million and respondents were informed of the price point as well as of the AT&T exclusive," M:Metrics senior analyst Mark Donovan said in a statement.

The iPhone will be available in the U.S. exclusively through AT&T as part of a five-year deal with Apple, M:Metrics noted. The device is expected to sell at $499 for the 4GB model and $599 for the 8GB, with a two-year AT&T service contract.
Recently some analysts have predicted that sales of the iPhone may quickly wear off once the initial hype is over. They say the device may disappoint because of its low battery life, slow texting capabilities because it doesn't have a keypad and the slow Internet capabilities.
