Earlier mobile was used mainly for voice communication but as the time progressed buyers started people started using mobile phones for messaging purpose. This time was known as the 1st generation of mobile phone. Time changed and the buyers where again looking for some more features in their mobile phones and the manufactures too where busy to come out with innovative features, it was the beginning of 2nd generation of mobile phone, when mobile phones with Camera and MP3 players were introduced. And now we are in the 3rd generation of mobile phone were we can send Emails, Pictures, Video etc from one phone to other. This report mainly focuses on the perception of iphone; we have tried to analysis the perception of people about the product. The result what I got from this research was that iphone is desirable for 93.3% and only for 6.7% people it is undesirable. In sample of 30 people there were 29 male and 1 were female apart from that most were young. Most of the people think that iphone is better than other as compare to other mobile and they think that it is better in aspect of high technology. Lots of people hear about the iphone by marketing. It is strange but it is true that those people whom iphone is desirable are satisfied with their existing handset quality. People like iphone as trusted brand, innovative, fashionable design and strong entertainment and most of the people understand all the functions. Iphone has the great influence in the Pakistan mobile market people are eager to buy this cell phone. INTRODUCTION Mobile users today want their handsets to be converged devices handling multiple functions, entertainment being the most important among them. They want their mobile to be fully loaded with top-end features, but they want all that at affordable costs. Iphone contains all that features which people demands and iphone meet on the people expectations. The Apple iPhone is easily the most publicized new mobile device in recent memory.This brand is strong among teens, as many say that they hope to buy it. If that does happen, it will be a kind of "first" in the cell phone market, because Apple isn't likely to discount phones, leaving this to be one expensive status symbol. We all know that iphone is a big name in the modern mobile world, its applications and design are the key factors which tempt people towards it. From this survey we want to know about the people’s attraction towards iphone. This report will include: 1. Our survey will include the desirability and undesirability of the iphone. 2. Samples were originated through the observation present and specified in the questionnaire. 3. The questionnaires included measurement of scale which were:  Ordinal scale  Likert scale  Sampling plan. 4. The above analysis applied did sketched the preview about the desirable/undesirable school of thought in the real world. APPLE I-PHONE This was the most awaited phone in the Indian market.

Renowned for its chic design and easy-to-use functions the iPhone has tremendous features such as its wide and clear screen, iPod, internet capability with classic web browser, GPS mapping, and last but not lease, a phone. Apple iPhone is being offered in the USA for the price of $900, so the awaiting buyers in Pakistan expected the same price. Unfortunately, that is not what happened. To grab hold of this hot item, you will have to shell out Rs.80,000 for the 8GB. OBJECTIVE The objective of the project is to explore the perception of the customer towards i-phone as a brand. To do a comparative study of iphone handsets in Pakistan  In the first part of my objective, I will try to find out the perception about wither it is desirable or not for people  Second part of the study will be focused on knowledge of people about the product and their satisfaction with existent handset.
