Best Buy Mobile recently commissioned a survey looking at how much Americans know about smart phones. Turns out roughly half of the potential buyers are confused about which model they want. And 64 percent of the 1,000 people surveyed say the devices are still too expensive.
That hasn’t dampened curiosity about the devices, though – or the envy of everything they can do.
58 percent of the people surveyed feel it’s important to be able to listen to music on their devices, while 41 percent want to be able to update their status on Facebook, Twitter or some other social networking site. Just over 1/3 say they think it’s important to play games on the machines.
Video on demand programming (and the ability to watch films) wasn’t mentioned as a chief demand of smart phones, though, indicating either people are unaware of that ability on many of today’s devices or they had limited interest in it.
