Blackberry Users Want To Jump Ship?

Market research firm Crowd Science has a very interesting blog post that makes the following claims based on a survey they just did. After surveying Blackberry users, they found that:

  • 40% of survey respondents said they plan replace their Blackberry handset for an iPhone
  • 32% of survey respondents said they’d be getting a Nexus One
  • 28% of survey respondents said that they’d keep their Blackberry

If you’re Jim Balsillie or Mike Lazaridis of RIM, you have to look at this and be a bit concerned. Now there’s a ton of other interesting info in this survey, so it’s worth a read. But clearly Apple and Google are clearly winning hearts and minds. And that has to be a red flag to RIM.

  1. Another take on this is that the iPhone and Nexus are just the new toy. People always want the new toy. For business use (the bulk of RIM’s customers) you need a good back end to support those phones.
