Apple iPhones have gone mainstream in the real estate industry. An Inman News survey reveals that more real estate professionals and technologists are using iPhones than other smart phones — and turn to them more frequently for a range of business activities.

Mobile technologies have exploded in an array of smart phones and thousands of apps. The Inman News smart phone and mobile technology survey explored the impact of this mobile revolution on real estate professionals and their industry.

The survey, which ran from July 28, 2010, through Aug. 6, 2010, garnered responses from 313 real estate professionals and technologists. Some respondents did not answer all of the survey questions; the average number of responses per question was 247.
