Despite lagging iPhone sales the new iPhone is looking to be hot with online shoppers.
The iPhone 5 is one of the most anticipated devices of 2012. Already estimates have put sales for the device at 50 million units in just the US alone. Some analysts have even gone so far to suggest that the iPhone 5 will sell 6 million to 10 million units in the last week of September alone. Even though Android holds the majority of the smarphone market share in America, there certainly seems to be a lot of interests in the new iPhone – currently a third of users in America already use an iPhone as is.
A survey of 1,740 on shoppers by PriceGrabber.com suggests that 21 percent of online shoppers plan on purchasing the iPhone 5 after it is released. The majority of the responders on the survey have already invested in Apple in one way or another: about 35 percent of those surveyed already own an iPhone and over 57 percent have an Apple product of some sort.
