Survey: iPhone smart phone market share growing

The iPhone’s share of the smart phone market continues to grow, according to the latest ChangeWave survey. The survey of 3,567 consumers, which was conducted after Apple’s June 9 announcement of the iPhone 3G, showed that 11% of respondents that own a smart phone had an iPhone, up two percentage points from the previous survey, and only three points away from second-place Palm. Research In Motion’s BlackBerry continued to lead with 42% of the market. Perhaps more interesting are the responses for future purchases. Out of the respondents that plan to purchase a smart phone in the next 90 days, 56% said they were going to buy an iPhone, compared to only 29% in the previous survey (conducted in March), and far above the 23% who said they were planning to buy a BlackBerry. Finally, the iPhone also continues to lead the smart phone market in customer satisfaction, with 78% of owners reporting that they are Very Satisfied with the phone. RIM ranks second with 54% of its customers saying they’re Very Satisfied, while Palm came in last in both metrics, with results of 3% and 29%, respectively.
