Are Americans Cured of “Crackberry” Addiction?
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!
