Are Americans Cured of “Crackberry” Addiction?

By on December 20, 2011

It seems that with the 2011 BlackBerry outtage, the rise and rise of iPhone and Android, Blackberry users are sobering up and looking  for a new smartphone. In full disclosure, I’m a Blackberry user and yes, I too have a wandering eye. Forgive me.

According to a new report 60% of “crackberry” users at small companies plan to exchange their BlackBerry phone over the next year for another platform such as Apple’s iPhone or Google’s Android.

“If you look at the amount of adoption of Android and iPhones — devices that didn’t exist a few years ago — that shows that this trend [of declining use of BlackBerry phones for business] has been going on but is accelerating now,” says EMA managing research director Steve Brasen, who wrote the report.

The report shows 52 percent of users at larger companies (10,000 employees or more) primarily use a BlackBerry for work, while only 36 percent said they plan to still be using a BlackBerry within the next year. So tell us which team you play for, team iPhone or team Droid. If you are committed to the berry, we want to hear that too!

    I have to admit that I had the iPhone 3G but thought it felt like a toy, then the BB Torch came out-A HYBRID. It worked for me. I like it but I have to admit to being swayed by other Apple products, so the phone would fit nicely. I’m secretly swooning the iPad2 for 2012.

    I see there is an evolution in your smartphones. What single feature made you switch from BB to Droid?

    I had a Blaclberry a few years ago. It was cool THEN. But by today standards Blackberries are horrible. My Droid Pro I use for work does everything a blackberry can do…plus has a better browser. I am baffled why any small company with a decent IT person would use a BB.

    Left BB last year this time for Android & now I’m headed to Apple before the end of the year.

    There are two applications I miss from BB; Blackberry Messenger & Social Scope. My point of view is that nothing anyone has will ever match these two.

    I loved my BB, as I do Android but I recently purchased a Macbook Pro & will keep things in the family. Personal choice.
