It’s not just Android owners who are looking to buy a new iPhone, according to the survey, 38% of BlackBerry owners are also planning to buy the new iPhone 5 with 8% planning to queue up on release day.

Even though it launched just over a year ago, 64% of iPhone 4S users are still looking to replace their device with the iPhone 5, according to the survey. Maybe they will be taking Apple up on its offer to pay for their iPhone 4S.
