The trend is not going to die anytime soon as the research also shows that people in U.S. are slowly leaning more towards Android than iPhone. Among those who are expecting a new smartphone in the next year, approximately one-third desire to join the iPhone camp and similar number of people are promising for Android.

With all such numbers, propositions, there are also a significant number of late adopters who are still hanging around with traditional non-smartphone handsets.
