The Verizon iPhone is officially alive and kicking. With it, a large number of existing Android and BlackBerry devices could soon go silent.

Online research company uSamp recently released a survey, which shows 54 percent of current Android, and BlackBerry smart phone owners could switch.

The potential switchers are mostly male (32 percent, versus 20 percent for females).

The report has a margin of error of 3.6 percent; uSamp surveyed 700 smart phone users in late January to reach these findings.
