What phones are Apple’s iPhone buyers throwing away? A lot of Motorola RAZRs.
Some 29.4% of iPhone 3G buyers were upgrading from Motorola devices, according to Nielsen’s Q2 2009 Mobile Insights Survey. About 11% of iPhone 3G buyers were ditching Samsung phones, and 9% were getting rid of RIM BlackBerry devices. About 9% were upgrading from older iPhones.
Not surprisingly, the list is fairly proportional to what other phone makers’ U.S. market shares looked like 2 years ago, the last time many iPhone 3G buyers got new phones.
