Most polls tend to take the position of their survey from the affirmative point of view. In other words, which phone would you like to buy, what are the most interesting features to you. However, a recent poll that came out of the research house Raymond James took another approach to this question.
What they did was ask the standard questions that we’ve come to expect, but they also asked the question, which phone would you never use and the results are interesting. Only one in five said that they would never buy an iPhone while one in three that were surveyed said that an Android phone was out of question. The biggest group of users however, a whopping 71% said that a BlackBerry is something that they would not buy.
The results shouldn’t be to surprising as they confirm the market success of Apple and Google that we already know about. Currently, 90% of all smartphones in Q4 were either an iPhone or an Android handset. Ideally, it would have been nice to have seen the results for the Windows handset as well as we know just how important mobile phones are for Microsoft’s business plans.
One thing to keep in mind however is that this poll only took into the account the opinions of 250 consumers, so it is a small poll.
