BlackBerry road to regaining its position as the number one smartphone among consumers seems to still have a steep road. After experiencing a downturn due to be regarded as a poor phone feature since Apple released its first iPhone on January 9, 2007, is now a survey conducted by a board of survey Raymond James in the United States shows that most consumers would not choose a BlackBerry device as its main smartphone.
According to news released by AllThingsD, Thursday (11/04/2013), Raymond James asks a question, whether they would prefer an Android, iPhone or BlackBerry to serve as a flagship smartphone. They cover a variety of factors, ranging from the size of the screen, lower price, and function optimally, in choosing a smartphone for everyday activities. The results were quite surprising.
A total of 71.4 percent of the respondents said that they would not be buying a BlackBerry device. Meanwhile, 19.7 percent and 31.3 percent of those admitted will not be spending money for the sake of the iPhone and Android. The survey is quite reasonable, given the duo’s Android and Apple is still dominate smartphone sales market. Both controls more than 90 percent share of the smartphone market until the fourth quarter, according to a survey from the International Data Corporation (IDC).
But it’s not just the results reflect the will of the overall market. Because the survey conducted from March 14 to March 26, 2013 are only involved as many as 250 respondents. In addition, the name of the BlackBerry itself seems already forgotten, although in February 2013 and they have released a new device with the operating system BlackBerry 10, which is quite innovative.
