According to a survey by CouponCodes4u, the iPhone 5 is the more desirable product by consumers over the iPad Mini.
Between the as of yet not officially announced products, the coupon site CouponCodes4u found that by a wide margin consumer wanted the iPhone 5 over the iPad Mini in a consumer survey. 78% in fact said they would get an iPhone 5. Some said they would use the smartphone more and other questioned the point of a smaller iPad.
The results aren’t that surprising. iPads are still somewhat of a luxury, while a smartphone is much more of a necessity in our modern world for both work and in the increasing need to stay connected. The survey isn’t an accurate cross section of all consumers as more than 75% of the 1,900 people that took part already own an Apple product with 64% owning an iPhone and 40% owning an iPad.
Interestingly enough, the survey also found that 21% of participants would consider getting an iPad mini for their children.
