Two out of five mobile phone users plan to buy iPhone 5, says research

Independent mobile ad network InMobi has published research that looks at the anticipated Apple iPhone 5, which is expected to be announced next week. It’s found that 41% of mobile users in the USA, Mexico and Canada plan to buy an iPhone 5 - and over half of them expect to make the purchase within six months of launch. As a result, the iPhone 5 has the potential of being Apple’s fastest-selling device.

Understandably there’d be less interest if the October announcement was for an updated device instead of a completely new handset; InMobi says less than 15% of mobile consumers would be interested in an ‘iPhone 4S’.

Over half of BlackBerry users and current iPhone users are planning to switch to the new Apple iPhone 5 (52% and 52% respectively), followed by 27% of Android owners.
