With more than 4,000 votes from iLounge readers, our most recent poll — “How long has it been since you bought your earliest iPod/iPhone?” — has ended. Readers were able to choose from lengths of time varying between 7 years and less than a year, with a separate option for readers that don’t own an iPod or iPhone.

Many respondents were long-time iPod users: more than a third of respondents said that they’ve owned an iPod for four years or more. Specifically, 9% said they purchased the original iPod seven years ago, 8% said they got their first iPod six years ago, and 18% said they’ve owned an iPod for five years. The largest number of readers — 19% — said they purchased their first iPod four years ago, while another 14% said they’ve owned an iPod for three years. The number of users who said they’ve owned an iPod or iPhone for one or two years was equal, with each receiving 6% of the vote, while 15% of readers said they’ve owned one of the devices for less than a year, and 4% said they don’t own an iPod or iPhone. (Yes, we’re also surprised.) Thanks for your responses!

Our new poll focuses on the iPhone. We’d like to know what feature currently missing from the device you’d most like to see added. Is copy & paste on your wishlist, or perhaps MMS messaging? Or maybe you’d like it to record video, or wirelessly sync with iTunes? Maybe Adobe Flash is most important to you, or perhaps A2DP stereo Bluetooth, or some other feature? The latest iLounge poll, “Which missing iPhone feature would you most like to see implemented?” lets you answer that question. As always, the iLounge Poll is on the left hand column of the main iLounge.com home page. Cast your vote today!
