    Survey: Smartphone demand accelerating.

    Report by: RBC Capital and ChangeWave Reseach

    • Interest is high. 14.4% planned to buy a smartphone over the next three months, up from 11.2% in March.
    • Apple and Palm lead demand. Interest in buying Apple’s iPhone jumped to 44% (from 30% in March) following the introduction of the 3G S. Interest in Palm doubled to 8% (from 4% in March and 1% last December). Interest in buying Research in Motion’s BlackBerry was still a “healthy” 23%, but down from 37% in March.
    • Touchscreens are hot. 43% of prospective smartphone buyers say touchscreens are “very important” to them, up from 33% in September. But users who do a lot of typing still prefer QWERTY keyboards (33%, basically unchanged).
    • Who needs TV? Asked in May what they’d be willing to part with, 1,700 respondents in a separate survey made their priorities clear. 44% would give up their TV service, 23% their home phones, 11% their DVD/movie rentals, but only 3% their cellphones.

    Demand for smartphones (as opposed to ordinary cellphones) has never been higher and continues to accelerate, according to a report issued Thursday by RBC Capital and ChangeWave Reseach.

    Poor TV's. If they would like to get back into the game I think they should begin producing Smart TV's. Hmmmmm?

    I think if the carriers can lower the prices on plans/phone like what happened with the price of computers/laptops over the years even more people will make the jump.
