41% of Mobile Users To Buy Apple iPhone 5

The iPhone 5  invitation is made up of icons from Apple iOS operating system that powers the iPhone. It includes a Calendar icon with the date of Tuesday, Oct. 4, a Clock displaying the time as 10:00, the Maps icon pinpointed on the company's Cupertino headquarters, and a Phone displaying one missed call. "Let's talk iPhone," it reads.

Two new studies have revealed rising interest in Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 5 from North American and UK mobile users at the expense of rival mobile platforms from Google and Research in Motion.

One study conducted by mobile ad network InMobi reveals that 41% of mobile phone users in U.S., Mexico and Canada want to buy the iPhone 5 in the future. Of those interested in the device, 50% would purchase it in the first six months after launch.

The same survey suggests that customer interest will be significantly lower in case Apple announces a softer iPhone update, “akin to the 3GS version of the iPhone that Apple released in 2009.” In this instance fewer than 15% of mobile users would buy such a device.

Analyzing customer retention and new users, InMobi says its data indicates that 51% of current iPhone owners would switch to the iPhone 5 but that only 11% of them would choose a so-called iPhone 4S.

As for current BlackBerry & Android users, 52% and 27%, respectively, said they would choose the iPhone 5. In the event Apple announces only an iPhone 4S model, fewer BlackBerry and Android device owners would be likely to make the switch to iOS – 28% and 11%, respectively.

In a second study covering the UK, research firm InMobi found similar responses.

For instance, 39% of mobile users in that study said they want to buy an iPhone 5 with 48% of them committed to purchasing the device in the first six months from launch. Only 12% of them said they'd buy an iPhone 4S.

At the same time, 62% of UK iPad users said they plan to purchase a iPhone 5, while 45% of BlackBerry users and 24% of Android device owners said they would purchase the upcoming handset. Interest in an iPhone 4S was also significantly lower in the UK market, at 25%, 7% and 18%, respectively.

When asked what potential features of a new iPhone they'd find most appealing, survey respondents said they'd want “improved battery life, increased processing speed, higher-quality screen resolution and stronger phone service.”

This elaborate infographic is part 1 of a three-part series that will lead us up to the launch of the iPhone 5, which is likely to be announced on Oct. 4.

iPhone 5 Pre-Orders On eBay From $1140 ?

There is a huge iPhone 5 buzz in the media right now and there are some who want to cash-in on all this craziness. TodaysiPhone reports on the rather curious case of an eBay seller that has already listed the iPhone 5 for pre-orders.

According to  this source ,If you follow this link you will see that the bidding has already ended, with 0 bids and a whopping starting price of $1,140. We obviously don't want to give free promotion to this eBay seller (who, incidentally, has 99.3% positive feedback),
There is a chance that the iPhone 5 could arrive SIM-free and even be globally available. It might be offered even on your country's carrier sooner than you might think

However, it seems that the seller is pretty confident he can get hold of several 32GB models and he also left a contact number. Even if he can though, there's really no logic in paying $1200 for something that you could get for $400 or even $500 cheaper.

The Making of iPhone 5 : Evolution and Timeline Of iPhones

This Infographic is courtesy Dusan Belic from IntoMobile and you can see the full infographic below this story.  This data shows the iPhone evolution from the first iPhone back in January 2007 and Beyond. Starting then with the original iPhone,iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and the as yet unreleased iPhone 5.

The infographic shows various categories for all the iPhone models including the processor, display, connectivity, camera, apps and more and it shows how far Apple has progressed with the iPhone in a relatively short space of time. For example the processor of the first iPhone was a 412MHz ARM 11 and by the iPhone 4 that had evolved to a 1GHz A4 processor. The iPhone 5 expected processor is shown as a 1GHz A5 dual-core processor.

The camera  has moved up, from a 2-megapixel fixed-focus shooter on the original iPhone, moving to an auto-focus 3.2-megapixel on the iPhone 3GS and what is predicted to be an 8-megapixel auto-focus for the iPhone 5. When the initial iPhone was first announced back in 2007 there were no apps However,  post the iPhone 3GS in 2009 there were 50,000 apps available and by October 2011, when we expect to see the iPhone 5 launched, there will be a staggering 500,000+ apps available.
