Changewave's December North American smartphone survey is a little less favorable to Apple (AAPL) than usual. 50% of respondents planning on buying a smartphone over the next 90 days say they'll get an iPhone, down from 71% in September (the time of the iPhone 5 launch). A year ago, that number fell to 54% from 65%. 21% say they'll get a Samsung (SSNLF.PK) phone, up from 13% in September. Also, 27% want a phone with a 5" or larger screen. The iPhone's U.S. share is easily higher than its share in most international markets. (previous)
