With their expensive taste in gadgets, iPhone users may appear to have ample disposable income.
But almost one in five owners of the must-have phone admit that their main bank account is always overdrawn. This is around double the national average, with one in ten Britons admitting to being constantly in the red.
In comparison, 54 per cent of those who own a phone that uses the rival Android operating system and half of BlackBerry owners say they are never overdrawn.
The figures were revealed in a survey that found financial status and salary can be linked to what type of smartphone you use. Those who use an Android or BlackBerry are also more likely to earn more than those who with an iPhone.
The YouGov poll found that 10 per cent of BlackBerry owners earned more than £50,000 a year, but only 5 per cent of iPhone users reached this salary bracket. A total of 7 per cent of Android phone owners had a salary in this range. Just under a half of iPhone users earn less than £20,000 a year, compared with 38 per cent who own a BlackBerry and 27 per cent of Android users. The Android has overtaken the iPhone as Britain’s most popular smartphone with 28 per cent of those polled owning a device powered by Android, compared with Apple’s 26 per cent. Only 14 per cent of the 2,000 people questioned said they used a BlackBerry.
I find the answer in China Mobile Phone Market. A mobile phone named “Gooapple” is trying to combine the feature of Android and iphone together.
Gooaple=Google Android 2.2.1 System + Apple high imitation iPhone 4 fuselage
Very interesting thing is Gooapple issued on Apple Fool’s Day. I guess the issuer want to say don’t celebrate the old iphone festival just as some conservative French did in 1564, since we have a new phone.
