iPhone "5" Launch Hands Market to Android

Mobilesyrup reported that only 10% of consumers are intending to upgrade to an iPhone 4S. Consumers expected to be wowed, only to learn the update would still have a 3.5 inch screen. With Android making larger screens more appealing, the iPhone upgrade cycle will not be as strong as anticipated.

Android has 41% of the market share of smart phones. However, Apple has the largest profit share for smart phones.
