Despite economy, smartphone market remains resilient

The economy may be mired in a credit crisis, but if there is one bright spot it is the smartphone market, according to a recent survey by ChangeWave Research.

The survey found that nearly 12 percent of those polled planned on buying a smartphone within the next 90 days--the highest such percentage in three years of polling. Despite dire economic conditions, the smartphone market has remained resilient since the spring.

Not surprising, Apple's iPhone 3G topped the handset wish list, with 34 percent saying they would buy the device. A full 30 percent said they wanted to get their hands on a Blackberry from Research In Motion, with Palm, Nokia and Motorola coming up in the low single digits in terms of desirability.
