  Strategy Analytics: iPhone Tops Americans' 2013 Consumer Technology Wish

Business Wire

BOSTON -- January 6, 2013

US consumers are more likely to buy an iPhone during the next twelve months
than any other of 22 key consumer electronics products, according to the
latest ConsumerMetrix survey from Strategy Analytics. 23.5 percent of 2285 US
consumers say they are somewhat or very likely to buy an iPhone. The next most
popular products are the Android smartphone (21.6 percent), the portable PC
(17.4 percent) and the iPad (15.3 percent). Smart TVs feature next on the
list, followed by digital cameras, blu-ray disc players and desktop PCs.
Products which appear towards the bottom of the wish list include Apple TV,
internet radios and multi-room music systems.

“Americans show no signs of falling out of love with the iPhone,” says Jia Wu,
Director, Connected Home Devices. “But interest in Android smartphones as well
as other personal computing devices remains strong, highlighting the leading
role of these smart technologies in today’s technology lifestyles.”

The study also identified changes in buying intentions over the past six
months. There has been a strong increase in interest in mobile phones in
general, and intention to buy TVs has also risen strongly. Interest in buying
blu-ray disc players, however, has fallen, and there has also been a notable
decline in intention to buy portable PCs and portable Mac computers.

Editor’s Note: Strategy Analytics conducted an online survey, the
ConsumerMetrix Survey fielded in October 2012. The sample consisted of n=4268
in Europe ages 15-74. Strategy Analytics weighted the data by country, age,
gender and internet use to represent the US and European populations of
internet users, respectively.
