41% US Mobile Users To Buy iPhone 5 and also Use Jailbreak
A mobile ad company, InMobi posted a new survey report which concluded that 41 percent of total US consumers have plans to buy the iPhone 5 after its release. The survey adds 50 percent of the above mentioned people are expected to buy the iPhone 5 in first six months of the release. As you might know that Apple will be making available the iPhone 5 for Sprint’s 52 million subscribers, this will obviously be a new market for Apple and the iPhone.
Since, a lot of customers across the globe will be buying Apple’s products, it is also believed that most of them will be playing with their smartphone to get it unlocked or jailbroken. Jailbreaking is a technology, where programmers, develop softwares and do reverse engineering to break the code of mobile operating system and then let people install whatever softwares which otherwise are not allowed to be run on the device. However, this practice may compromise the warranty of Jailbroken iPhone 5, but users for sake of experience will still be trying iPhone5Jailbreaks.org without thinking twice, that this may cause some issues with their expensive device.
A news from Paid Content stated:
If consumers put their money where their mouths are, these numbers could go a long way to bumping up Apple’s overall market share in the UK and the U.S. According to figures from Kantar Worldpanel, in Q2 Apple had an 18.3 percent share of the UK smartphone market; another research group, comScore, puts it around 20 percent. If people follow through with their purchasing intent, InMobi says this share would go up to 40 percent. In the U.S., the market share would grow to 41 percent.
Many other surveys also show similar results which means that this time iPhone will have very high demand than never before. On the other hand, InMobi also states that if Apple did not introduce a newly designed iPhone and instead just released a mere product update, then these results will not apply and very few products will buy the updated phone. Well, Apple is keeping it quiet until the announcement which is scheduled on 4th October media event. So, till then we will know that if Apple releases an iPhone 4’s update or a completely redesigned iPhone 5 with speculative tear drop style shape.
