Poll Results: Will You Line Up for iPhone? (58/42)

The results of our most recent iLounge Poll are in, and they’re surprising: a shockingly high percentage of iLounge readers said that they were planning to line up for the iPhone’s June 29 release.

With nearly 2,500 votes cast, a total of 42% of iLounge readers said that they’ll stand in line for the iPhone launch, with only a small fraction (1/7 of that crowd) saying they’d go just to see the iPhone, and not buy one. The rest said that they were planning to buy the iPhone so long as AT&T’s contracts weren’t too expensive—a little over half of the “yes” votes said they’d buy iPhones no matter how much the contracts cost. Around a third of the “yes” pool said that contract pricing might stop them from buying an iPhone.

The remaining 58% said “no,” they wouldn’t line up for iPhone—a number that increased as Apple released more information, and early reviews began to appear. Some users said that they were not at all interested in iPhone, or that they were interested, but not at current prices. However, some “no” votes were people who wanted to see or buy iPhone but were unwilling to wait in line to do so.

Our new poll, “Which do you want more, an iPhone or a new iPod?” is now live on iLounge.com’s main page, in the left-hand column under iLounge poll. Please register your vote today!

Can I assume this works with any phone that uses the same pin system?

Also, I agree with #1.  I wish the iPhone was 3G, did everything a cellphone and a smartphone can do and do it with a nicer interface, and had enough capacity to replace my phone and my current iPod.

THAT would be a revolution.  This is a step backward in cell phones.  There is a whole list of basic phen-type things it cannot do, and that’s a no-go for me.

@2 “This is a step backward in cell phones”
Wow. Simply wow. Do some research before you make such an ignorant statement.

Just because its not 3G doesnt mean its a step backwards. Only 2 of those phones have 3G. NONE except the iPhone have WiFi (FASTER THAN 3G, and easy to find..). iPhone also has a better screen, longer talk time, and full email client and internet browser. All in a package that is thinner, sleaker, and a HELLAVA lot more beautiful. Oh and BTW, only 160 cities in the whole US even have 3G (via engadget.com).

sure, there’s a few features conspicuously absent from the iPhone, but you want “a nicer interface” (!?) Is the iPhone’s interface not the best thing you’ve seen, ever? Talk about hard to please….

The IPhone is the best and uniquest device i’ve seen so far.

I have currently a Motorola MPX220 which has everything i need BUT its a bit complicated. even when it got a windwos system on it. its just frustrating. i do have a 1GB flash cart for my videos or pictures but im not satisfied.

I was about to build a computer with 7” touch screen in my vehicle. I was looking for internet, music, mainly but the IPhone has it all and it makes it mobile for me too.

so all i need is a bluetooth stereo setup to stream my music over my headunit stereo system.

I’m going to wait and see if apple will upgrade to at least 20GBor 40GB.

I told my wife that i should have married the IPhone ... wink

I need an upgraded ipod, not a complicated gadget (btw I am tech savvy). “Less is more” (mies van der rohe), simple is beautiful, and that is the beauty of the Ipod. I just need a bigger screen and more capacity on it. Ahh!! almost forgot the anti-scratch material.
