Android, iPhone Battle Over Blackberry Owners

March 15, 2010

Nearly four in ten (39%) Blackberry owners continue to prefer Apple's iPhone as their next smartphone purchase, but another one-third (34%) say they would switch to Google's Android operating system, according to a survey from Crowd Science.

The Android rivals the iPhone in owner loyalty: 92% of iPhone owners and 87% of Android owners plan to stick with their current brand when buying their next phone.

Below, other findings from Crowd Science's Android vs. iPhone survey.

Nearly one third (32%) of Blackberry owners, compared with just 9% of iPhone owners, say they would swap their current phone for Google's new Android-based Nexus One. Meanwhile 60% of other smartphone owners say they would swap their phone for a Nexus One.

    Wonder are they fighting over the right owner? Meaning Corp IT for business users, they like what they know. Corp IT can dictate what type of phone and service they purchase, in particular if it's expensed.

    I think the "another" in the opening paragraph is a bit mis-leading. It's not 73% of Blackberry users say they'll switch. The 39% and the 34% are overlapping.
