1.3 million people search for 6.9 million Apple iPhones

Nearly 7 million searches for Apple iPhone in a single month. That’s the surprising statistic to emerge from comScore, a company that specializes in measuring the digital world.

comScore has today released the results of a study into iPhone related searches. Conducted during the month of April and covering just the US market, it reveals that there were 6.9 million searches on related keywords during that period.

The full list of popular iPhone search terms is:

1. IPHONE (1,488,000)
2. IPHONE UPDATE (151,000)
3. IPHONE WEB APPS (118,000)

8. IPHONE G3 (43,000)

10. IPHONE SPEAKERS (35,000)

“Speculation had been rampant in recent months that Apple CEO Steve Jobs was getting ready to introduce a 3G iPhone at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference on June 9, and indeed he did just that,” said Dan Lackner, comScore Senior VP. “Search is frequently a harbinger of purchase intent.

Google's Android delayed – too late to compete with iPhone?

Undoubtedly, Google sits on the top of search engine business, but, it is now experiencing delays in launch of it’s mobile OS, Android.

“This is where the pain happens,” Andy Rubin, Google’s director of mobile platforms. “We are very, very close.” He was talking about adding features etc requested by carrier partners. I think this is why Jobs was smart in being tyrannical and ignoring carrier requests when it came to software. Google apparently can’t afford to ignore partner requests.

Reports reveal that the OS will be launched in Q4, 2008. I wish I could hear the loud laugh from the Apple’s Steve Jobs! :D

Is the Google Android a little too late to compete with the Jesus phone aka iPhone? :P
