U.S consumers are more likely to buy an iPhone during 2013 than any other key electronics product including an Android smartphone, reports Strategy Analytics.

23.5 percent of 2285 US consumers say they are somewhat or very likely to buy an iPhone. The next most popular products are the Android smartphone (21.6 percent), the portable PC (17.4 percent) and the iPad (15.3 percent). Smart TVs feature next on the list, followed by digital cameras, blu-ray disc players and desktop PCs. Products which appear towards the bottom of the wish list include Apple TV, internet radios and multi-room music systems.

"Americans show no signs of falling out of love with the iPhone," says Jia Wu, Director, Connected Home Devices. "But interest in Android smartphones as well as other personal computing devices remains strong, highlighting the leading role of these smart technologies in today's technology lifestyles."

The study also notes that interest in purchasing mobile phones and televisions has increased over the past six months; whereas, interest in blu-ray players, portable PCs and portable Macs has fallen.

I own a Note 2 and recently tried out an iPhone 5 just to see how Apple has done with it's current OS and it sucks just like it did when I gave it up several years ago... You literally have to go thru 20 different menus to turn on wifi... Which you WILL need cause Apple limits your app store downloads to 50mb on a cellular network?? IOS is just one big FAILURE of an operating system!! They sell these phones because people are too stupid to know how a REAL phone should work! Soon, all of you people will know what a true OS is and you will switch too... IOS is GARBAGE!!

I don't know. Thinking or guessing that u will buy an iPhone, doesn't mean u will actually do it. I help a friend of mine (who has a cell accessories and repair store) fix iPhones. Last 2 months, I noticed the trend of more galaxy note and s3 than iPhone 5. I am talking about new phones for screen protectors. Maybe because better deals on Christmas and new year on s3, as I hear they were giving $0 for 3 year contract. But with iPhone getting harder to jailbreak while android are much easier, also most apps are on both platforms, seems iPhone is losing ground, remember galaxy s4 is around the corner. If next iPhone has nothing to wow people, In my opinion, they will lose to galaxy. Also it seems after job pass away, apple lacked the big innovation as we used to be surprised when new apple devices came out.
