iPhone: It's not just better...



By

Rubicon Consulting has released a wealth of information on the iPhone in the form of a report, The Apple iPhone: Successes and Challenges for the Mobile Industry, based on survey of 460 randomly selected users.

Here are some of the key findings:

iPhone users are very satisfied
E-mail is the No 1 used function
The iPhone increases mobile browsing… More than 75% of iPhone users say it has led them to do more mobile browsing
About 40% of users say the iPhone has trouble displaying some websites
About 50% of iPhones replaced a phone, 40% replaced smartphones, 10% replaced nothing
The Razr was the most often replaced phone
Windows Mobile, RIM Blackberry were the smartphones most often replaced

Apple iTunes
Refurbished iPod touch—8GB for $229, 16GB for $299, 32GB for $399
With FREE shipping while supplies last!


A third of iPhone users carry a second phone
A quarter of iPhone users say it’s displacing a notebook computer
28% say they often carry their iPhone instead of a laptop
About half of iPhone users are under age 30
About 15% are students
At least 75% of US iPhone users are previous Apple customers
iPhone has increased users’ average monthly bill by 24% ($228) per year
The iPhone leads people to change carriers (nearly 50%)
AT&T’s gamble pays off with gross service revenue up by about $2 billion per year

This above is just a small sampling of what's available in Rubicon's publicly available (.pdf) report.

Editor's note: The iPhone's effect on people isn't game changing—it's a whole new game. People do more, spend more and they're almost to a fault young, meaning the changes we're seeing are absolutely long-term in nature.

Moreover, in case you missed it, they're spending more and happier, a lot happier for the expense.

And, very much like the music labels, AT&T ceded a lot to Apple and got back more than anyone anticipated.

AAPL at $200 doesn't seem all that expensive...
