iPhone demand still growing despite distance from 4S launch

updated 04:40 pm EDT, Wed April 11, 2012

Levels second only to pre-launch period

Demand for the iPhone has actually grown since the release of the iPhone 4S, a new ChangeWave Research study claims. The firm polled 4,413 people in March; of the people who said they would buy a smartphone in the next 90 days, 56 percent said they were planning to buy an iPhone. That figure is actually up two points from December, which not only represented part of the holiday shopping season, but came just two months after the launch of the 4S.

ChangeWave research director Paul Carton notes that the result is the second-highest the company has ever recorded, short of one taken just before the 4S' launch. Skewing the results though is the fact that 87 percent of the March survey group was American, and consisting mostly of early adopters.

Other phone manufacturers showed relatively marginal results. Samsung held steady at 13 percent, and Motorola shrank a point to 6 percent. HTC was flat at 3 percent, while RIM grew by a single point to tie that number.
