Europeans get iPhone fever, survey reveals

Written by


40 percent of smartphone buyers to choose Apple
According to a study by Yankee Group, European consumers are turning to the iPhone in droves.

Some 40 percent of smartphone buyers in Europe apparently plan to spend their hard earned euros on pricey iPhones. About 19 percent will go for Android devices, while 17 percent opted for BlackBerry and 15 percent will stick with good old Nokia, i.e. Symbian.

The study found that Europeans are showing no signs of Apple fatigue and that Nokia and RIM face an uphill struggle to maintain their market share. Interest in Android phones is also growing, which comes as no surprise.

The survey covered 5,000 consumers and 2,250 tech sector employees in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK. We doubt that the survey would have came up with such results had it been conducted in new EU members in Central and Eastern Europe, or for that matter even Greece.

It is a bit easier to go gor an iPhone with plenty of disposable income on hand.

iPhones are fairly easy to use and you can download your music via itunes and sync so ease of use is the main selling point.

It depends. I sold my iPod because I hated iTunes.

A few years later I got an iPhone and I still hate having to using iTunes to copy a few tunes...

For me the selling point was the huge number of apps and good OS.

Don't act like a kid, every product has something similar when you compare it with their competition. And why is it good ? Because that give us a choice to select the better one.

Yeah, considering how phone tech in Asia and Europe is ahead of the curve compared to America, I can absolutely see why Europeans would start jumping on iPones...

Nice "survey" there.
