With all the new smartphones announced over the past few months -– including the iPhone 5 -– it should come as no surprise that many people are looking to buy a new smartphone.
AYTM Research, working with Mashable, conducted a detailed market research study of the smartphone market as it stands now at the end of 2012, and created this exclusive infographic looking at what prospective buyers are most interested in, particularly looking at the iPhone market.
Some of its findings:
73% of people looking to buy a smartphone in the next 6 months are already smartphone owners
Current Android owners are 2.4x more likely to switch to an iPhone than vice versa
87% of current iPhone owners plan to buy a new iPhone in the next 6 months
Only 9% of current iPhone owners are considering a switch to Android
Check out all of ATYM’s findings in the infographic. What do you think about the stats?

The 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will be broadcast tonight (Sunday, Sept. 23) at 7 p.m. ET on ABC, and if you’re like us, you’re probably wondering who’s going to win.
You can guess who might be taking home the Emmy hardware tonight, but guesswork won’t be enough — we figured the best way to get a more accurate reading of the pulse of the American public would be to get a gigantic sample of TV watchers, celebrities and people in the entertainment world to tell us who they thought would emerge victorious.
To do that, we turned to digital magazine distributor Zinio, which polled an impressive 250,000 digital magazine subscribers, asking them who they thought would be the big Emmy Award winners tonight in the major categories. With such a large sample, it will be interesting to see how close these predictions are to the actual results.
Meanwhile, if you’re interested in a free second-screen experience while you watch the Emmys live, go to “Backstage Live” at Emmys.com, where you’ll see candid red carpet and backstage moments via your choice of 15 cameras. We watched it for the past couple of years, and even though that multitude of cameras won’t show you what’s happening on stage at the awards ceremony — you have live television to do that for you — it’s quite entertaining and revealing, a perfect supplement to give you a comprehensive overview of the proceedings.
Enjoy the Emmys, and may the best show win! Which show or actor do you think has a lock on an Emmy tonight?
