The new iPhone 5 – will you buy it ‘blindly’?

Which? Conversation: Our survey found one in five iPhone users intend to buy the iPhone 5 – even though they haven’t seen it yet. Is this blind devotion wise? Or are we being brainwashed by brilliant marketing and Apple’s ‘cool’ factor?

Of course not. I still have a first gen iTouch. I just bout an iPad 2 and don't plan on upgrading till the iPAD 6 or so.

Prophet-Gamer1852d ago

lol, that actually cracked up. Good one.

I'm the same way. I'm only getting the iphone 5 because I have an 8 year old ipod ready to break and a 9 year old phone held together with scotch tape.

Prophet-Gamer1851d ago

Damn dude, 9 year old phone? Props to you for keeping it alive that long.

Whats with all the Apple products being cool hate. They're on top because when they release something it sets the new standard again and again.

what standard does did apply that android phones didn't do first? I hope you dont think facetime was invented by apple.

I don't know much, but ever since the iPhone came out, EVERY phone looks like it. I am pretty sure Android was looking completely different before the iPhone was announced, the same with Blackberry OS. ( I remember someone posted a story about that, I will look for the link) The same goes for the iPad, look at every other tablet and they look just like the iPad, even Kindle will look like one now.

Apple may not do much, and it leaves some features out to introduce them as the next best thing on the next iteration, but Apple it is doing something right because EVERYONE is playing catch up.

I for one, am expecting the iPhone 5 to come out since I am almost done with my contract and I want a new phone, and I've never had an iPhone. So for me is good news.

WRONG!!!! windows phone 7 looks nothing like iphone and with the mango update its a beast!

Shackdaddy8361851d ago

Everything that's popular is cool to hate on the internet.

RBdrift1853d ago

Those people are walking tools.

twora1853d ago

I think the ones that are tools are the ones that care so much they hate on people that buy Apple products solely because their droids aren't as "cool". Apple's sets the standard in how well it does everything whether it's something innovative or not.

Only idiots buy something blindly... no matter the brand.

PirosThe4th1852d ago

Prophet-Gamer1852d ago

Exactly, couldn't have said it better myself.
