iPhone Can Get You Dates

Men with an iPhone are more attractive than men without the Apple phone.

According to a British survey conducted by Phones 4u, men with iPhones are luckiest in love.

The British survey of 1500 women suggests that men who own the Apple iPhone handset are said to be more attractive than those who do not.

Good news for those men out there who are fixated on the latest gadgets in lieu of a love life; 54% of women stated that they would be more likely to date a man if he owns an iPhone. One respondent suggested “if he has an iPhone then he’s obviously intelligent and well-off.”

Other factors for gadget geeks being looked upon more favourably in the dating stakes include better grooming, a good sense of humour and ease of communication. 37% of those quizzed say that owning an iPhone makes a man seem more reliable, to which nearly all went on to say that a second date would be likely.

35% of women said that what a man does for a living would affect their chances of a first date, whilst only a meagre 7% don’t mind how their prospective mate puts food on his table.

Strong sales of its iPhone and Macintosh computers helped Apple profits to leap by 90% in the first quarter of 2010.

It made a net profit of $3.1bn while revenue rose 49% to $13.5bn in the three months to 27 March.

Apple said it sold about nine million of its popular smart phone – more than double the figure from a year earlier.

The Next iPhone is expected this summer.
