Macwold UK reports on a recent survey carried out by Solutions Research Group which looks at the likely demographic of US purchasers of the iPhone. The results are based on an online survey of 1,230 American consumers in May 2007, and reveal some interesting, though arguably predictable results, about who said they would buy the $499 device.
- 72 % of early adopters will be male with an average age of 31-years.
- 58 % will have completed college, and that they will have higher incomes than most US consumers.
- The research claims iPhone user’s $75,600 per year household income will be 28 % higher than the national average.
- 48 % of potential buyers don’t currently own an iPod.
- Residents of tech-savvy regions, New York and California, will account for 43 % of total first wave iPhone buyers.
So your average iPhone early adopter will be male, in their late 20s to early 30s, affluent, and live on the East or West coast.
