Cometh the revolution, cometh Reliance. This time the price of 5G smartphones under the radar of Reliance.

Demand of iPhone is mounting up with the galloping pace day-over-day and that’s why, Apple shipped 5 million units of iPhone 5 in first weekend since its availability. Now, iPhone does not remain confined to adults in the U.S., but it has trickled down to teenagers as well. According to a survey conducted by Piper Jaffray & Co. over 7,700 teens in the U.S., 40% of teenager (respondents in survey) own iPhone and 62% are planning to buy the handset in next six months, while 22% of teens are more likely to own Android smartphone as their next phone.

Just 17% of teens in the U.S. owned iPhone until spring of the last year, but number grew up to 23% by the end of the last year. Just a six month before in the spring of this year, 34% of teens had iPhone and the number rose by 6% during this fall. Of course, the figures show teenagers are also afflicted with iPhone vehemence in the country along with adults. In addition to these, the number of teens owning Tablet computer has jumped from 34% in spring 2012 to 44% in fall 2012. Interestingly, 72% of teens among those own Tablets in the country have iPad.

Due to advent of iPhone 5, teens could easily find an iPhone 4S for about $100 and even some deals offer the device free of cost in the U.S.. . There’s also a probability that the teen might get their hand on parents old iPhone.


Moreover, 74% of teens those have not purchased any Tablet yet but planning to buy in next six months are willing to get their hand on iPad.  It’s also speculated that ‘iPad Mini’ would have lower price tag compare to its big bro and 43% of teens are planning to buy the tablet only if the price of the device will be $299.

The Asian suppliers have received orders for over 10 million units of iPad Mini to be built in Q4 of this year.  However, according to another survey, a significant number of users in the U.S. are still reluctant to buy Apple’s upcoming Tablet. It’s also considered that iPhone users are not as satisfied with iOS 6 as they are with iOS 5 . Definitely, prevalence of Apple’s device among teenagers is a good bode for the company.
