An assertion was made to me that teens (specifically both genders age
12-18) are not adopting iPhones because they're used to being able to
text without looking at the phone - essentially typing by feel and
relying on the predictive typing software in the phone to get it
right. The underlying claim is that the interaction model of the
iPhone doesn't match the use model for this population and so they're
not adopting it (or any of its on-screen-typing competitors).
My Google fu is completely failing to find any data that would back up
or discount this assertion. I'm hoping someone here knows where to
look. I'd even take raw sales statistics, though of course an actual
study would help.
