Americans want iPhone, buy Android(Read article summary)
The iPhone remains the most desirable phone among North American consumers – as well as the most liked among current users.
Despite the gargantuan gains made by Google's Android operating system, the Apple iPhone remains the most desirable handset in North America. That's the gist of a recent poll by the analytics firm ChangeWave, which polled 4,163 consumers in the US and Canada. Of the consumers considering purchasing a smart phone, 46 percent told ChangeWave they were leaning toward the iPhone, while 32 percent said they were eying some sort of Android device.
The ChangeWave team also took a look at current customer satisfaction, and again, Apple came out on top, by a hefty margin. A whopping 70 percent of current iPhone users reported being "very satisfied" with their mobile devices, compared to 50 percent of Android users, and a paltry 27 percent of Windows OS users. (A caveat: 57 percent of Windows Phone 7 users were "very satisfied," compared to 14 percent of Windows Mobile OS users.)
