iPhone and the Smartphone Market for the Next 6 Months [INFOGRAPHIC]

Now that the iPhone 5 has arrived to the smartphone world, the phone maker’s share of the smartphone industry is set to rise in the coming months, until another maker comes with a killer (Samsung Galaxy S4 perhaps). The data below are shown taking into account a survey of 600 Americans aged 18 + and thus relate only to the U.S. market.

For the next six months, the market share of Android would drop from 54% to 49% in the United States, while Apple should enjoy a rise from 31 to 39%. At the same time Blackberry’s share will fall from 7% to 3% (poor RIM, the Canadian manufacturer almost touching the bottom!!).

This will be welcome news for Apple, whose sales of the new iPhone 5 reached 5 million units in the first 3 days. Impressive, but not what Wall Street expected to see i.e. more than 8 million units sold, in comparison Apple sold 4 million iPhone 4S in the first three days of its launch.

Results of the study illustrated below:
