Survey Shows The New iPhone 5 May Capture RIM And Android Users
A recent survey conducted by Piper Jaffray found that almost half of all Android and BlackBerry users plan to switch to an iPhone 5. The survey consisted of 216 people from Minneapolis, MN. Although those numbers are small, the results were very similar to an earlier and larger survey by ChangeWave. Of those surveyed the breakdown of the types of phones they currently owned included: 29 percent iPhone, 28 percent BlackBerry, 17 percent Android, 15 percent feature phone and 11 percent other. The existing Android users were almost split when it came to switching to an iPhone. In that group, 47 percent said they were planning to stick with Android and 42 percent were planning a change to an iPhone. However, the outlook is a bit grim for RIM, where only 26 percent were planning to get another BlackBerry and 67 percent were upgrading to the iPhone. Only three percent planned to purchase an Android.
