According to research from Comscore, about 7 million searches were done on the terms related to the iPhone for the month of April this year as the market was speculating on the launch of a new 3G iPhone (Source: Macworld).
The most popular search term was “iPhone” itself with 1.5 million searches. In total 1.3 million people did 6.9 million searches on terms relating to the iPhone. Considering that this was back in April, we would love to see what the same numbers are for May, and June when Steve Jobs released the 3G iPhone at the developers conference.
We will come back with updated numbers as soon as we have found them.
