iPhone Owners In The US Run Up The Biggest Bills

A new report by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners reveals that iPhone owners in the US run up the biggest mobile phone bills — spending far more than other smartphone users.

The report reveals that 60 per cent of iPhone users in the US — or at least those who were polled — spend more than $US100 per month on their plans. Above that, 10 per cent spend $US200 or more, and only 6 per cent spend $US50 or less. Compare that to 12 per cent of Android users who pay less than $US50.

So why do iPhone users spend more? It's almost certainly down to the fact that through necessity iPhone users tend to be on more expensive data plans to begin with. But you could, perhaps, flip the issue on its head: maybe Android is just used by people with less cash? Would a similar survey in Australia reveal similar trends? [CIRP via All Things D]
