Data from yesterday’s iPhone 4 marathon of line-standing are trickling across the intertubes.
I found this to be less sunny a prediction than the analyst they quoted as saying “mission accomplished.”
Apple has always sold well into its sweetspot of users, so if anything, wouldn’t analysts be looking for them to take marketshare from others?
The survey size isn’t terribly large (only 608 respondents), but here are two points that stuck out for me:
- Only 3% of people were switching from an Android device to iPhone, and only 6% were switching from BlackBerry to iPhone.
- 16% of buyers were switching carriers to AT&T, up from 28% last year.
I interpret these as bad signs for Apple. Am I wrong?
