You might have heard of this thing called the iPhone 5 that's "coming soon.". It's going to crush Android, just like the iPhone 4 was supposed to, or the iPhone on Verizon. At least that's what the fruit flavored portions of the Internet keep telling me. They even have a study to back it up -- earlier this month industry analyst Gene Munster surveyed a whopping 216 people in Minneapolis and found that 42 percent of Android users were planning to buy an iPhone.
Now, Mr. Munster doesn't say where he polled all these people, it could have been at an Apple store or a Hot Topic right next to the Starbucks at the mall (same difference?). Rather than guess at what these results mean we decided to run a poll of our own, at a place where we know there are lots and lots of Android users -- right here at Android Central. The question is simple -- what OS will be on the next phone you buy. Not a tablet. Not an mp3 player. Not a set top box. Just your phone. I'm betting our results will be a bit different than Mr. Munster's.
