Impact of leaked iPhone

    Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve tried to learn more about the 4G-leak-awarenes-level among users of iPHones and other branded handsets.  Surprisingly, the awareness is not as high as I would have expected.  There were some who were aware of it, but most were not.  We may be making too much of the iPhone 4G story.  It’s far from a scientific sample, but despite the Gizmodo coverage, and elsewhere, the 4G has not penetrated everyone’s mindset on phones.

    I think where the leak will come into play is when a friend mentions to a current iPhone owner that he/she is thinking of getting one. Unless the current iPhone owner is someone’s grandmother, chances are they will be savvy enough to advise holding off till June’s model. I wonder if sales staff at the Apple Stores/Best Buy stores/ATT stores are being firmly taught to keep mum on upgrades.
