Apparently, the Apple iPhone 4 isn’t the most searched for handset according to a survey by comparison site Good Mobile Phones.
Mobile Magazine reports that Good Mobile Phones carried out research over a period of a month, monitoring which phones were searched for on its site by UK consumers.
And the most interest was directed towards HTC’s new handsets, with the Wildfire, Desire and Desire HD nabbing the top three spots in the most searched for chart.
The Samsung Galaxy S and Nokia N8 came next, with the iPhone 4 only managing to secure sixth place, a result which rather flies in the face of how many units it has shifted this year. Perhaps interest is now waning in Apple’s new external antenna laden creation.
The top ten was rounded off by the Blackberry Curve 8520, Samsung Tocco Lite, BlackBerry Torch and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini.
Mark Owen, the Managing Director of Good Mobile Phones, told Mobile Magazine: “For some time now, HTC has been knocking at the door and trying to overtake the Apple iPhone’s dominance of the handset market. Our results clearly show that they have taken the lead in terms of consumer demand for their smartphones.”
Having said that, looking at the site currently, the iPhone 4 is actually the top search term, followed by the HTC Desire, although that’s just a spot check as opposed to a month’s worth of data.
