With the iPhone 4 launching in Canada on July 30th, a IDC survey conducted last week in the U.S. polled IT professionals and it showed that 66% of current iPhone owners plan on delaying their iPhone 4 purchase because of the antenna & reception issues. In addition, 74% who don’t own but plan to buy an iPhone 4 stated the antenna and reception problems wouldn’t delay their purchase.
Will Stofega, a mobile device analyst for IDC said “That’s a very mixed message. It looks like a perfect example of the difference between behavioral economics and market economics. The iPhone 4 clearly isn’t working as it should, Apple’s saying that ‘We’ll give you a Bumper,’ but people seem committed to the iPhone. Many of them see this as overblown, and that Apple will fix it.”
