Apple "Apple today announced it has sold over five million of its new iPhone 5, just three days after its launch on September 21, and more than 100 million iOS devices have been updated with iOS 6, the world's most advanced mobile operating system." The last claim is debatable, but the figures are not - very impressive. Of course, do note that the iPhone 5 was available in more countries than the 4S in its first weekend, and if you take that into account, the iPhone 5 didn't do any better than the 4S at all (which doesn't negate the incredible sales - it just highlights the smartphone market's growth might be slowing). It's also lower than what analysts expected, but they're just monkeys throwing darts at figures anyway.

I'd like to see a switch matrix......

Member since:

Would there be something like a 'switch matrix'? Just like with elections: "x% of persons who voted for party X last time, have now voted for party Y"

So that we know what current say Android users upgrade to (Android, iOS, WP, RIM, Other, Dumbphone) and what clients that buy an iPhone5 used before (older iPhone; Android, WP, RIM, Other, Dumbphone, none - that is, new in the phone market).

(ps, yes I know I mixed up OSes and phones)
