PriceGrabber: 35% of Consumers Likely to Buy iPhone 5 Right Away
The number of so-called early-adopters of iDevices is growing exponentially, according to the fascinating survey results published today by the team at PriceGrabber. Based on a survey of more than 3,000 mobile consumers, better than one-third of respondents said they will scoop up the 5th generation iPhone right away.
35% of consumers in all will buy the iPhone 5 soon - probably within 6 months - after release. 51% revealed they plan to buy the refreshed device within its first full year of availability. 31%, however, said they will definitely purchase the long-awaited smartphone before the end of 2011.
During Apple's third fiscal quarter, Apple sold more than 20 million iPhones - a 142% increase over the same quarter in 2010. Although it's difficult to imagine Apple topping 20 million iPhones in a quarter again, if sales estimates and analyst projections (based on surveys like those of PriceGrabber and others) are correct, Apple may be on pace for subsequent record-setting quarters yet again.
As we reported earlier today, the latest information coming from sources close to AT&T and Apple suggest that it is now all but certain that the iPhone 5 will be released in September, though the official announcement and unveiling of the 5th generation smartphone could come as early as next month.

I think this is my opportunity to hold off and wait for contract to expire and switch over to Verizon without any penalty. Have to wait and see the differences.

I may skip the 5th generation all together since I just got my Verizon iPhone 4 in February, I will just wait until I can upgrade, by then the 6th generation may come out.

35% of consumers will be guinea pigs for the rest of us to determine if this phone is actually worth getting.

Nope, I will wait for iPhone 6 or 7. Already got my iPhone 4 jailbroken and setup with tethering for my ipad2. Don't feel like having to spend more money this year on another phone. Already own 2 iPhone 3G, 2 iPhone 4s, and two iPad 2s. Just need a MacBook to complete my conversion to Apple (probably won't happen, I ike my PCs).

I'd love to get the iPhone 5 on release date but sadly I will have to miss this year out again as a) I'm happy with my iPhone 4 and b) I'm rather low on cash and have other personal problems.
