T-Mobile’s released a short press release earlier today highlighting the introduction of “unlimited” web for Walmart’s Family Mobile plan. Specifically, T-Mobile suggested that their survey discovered that “44% of first-time smartphone buyers in 2012 say the cost of the data plan associated with a smartphone is the most influential reason they have not purchased a smartphone before.” It’s an interesting statistic and it got me thinking, what was the reason you, our dear TmoNews readers, held off on buying your first smartphone? As tech blog readers, you’re likely a very different sample size than the group T-Mobile polled, still, we’re curious about why you held off on that first smartphone purchase? It’ll be interesting to see if the numbers match.
Take the poll!
