BlackBerry users more likely to switch to the Apple iPhone 6

BlackBerry users more likely to switch to the Apple iPhone 6
Online research firm Survata completed a survey of 889 people, and discovered that 6% of BlackBerry users are "very likely" to switch to the Apple iPhone 6. For Android users, 5% believe that they will end up purchasing the iPhone 6. Only 3% of Windows Phone users said that they were likely to switch. The survey took place between September 2nd and September 4th.

Not surprisingly, 36% of Apple iPhone 5 owners expect to buy the iPhone 6. Many who purchased the iPhone 5, will soon have their two-year contract expire. That will leave them with an upgrade to use toward purchasing the new handset at a subsidized price. Those with the newer Apple iPhone 5s (18%) and Apple iPhone 5c (15%) are also desirous of the larger-screened version of their phone.

In noting that only 5% of Android users surveyed said that they were likely to switch to the iPhone 6, Survata said that the features expected to appear on the next iteration of Apple's smartphone, a 4.7 inch screen with a 417ppi pixel density, and NFC connectivity, have long been available on Android handsets.

Considering that the Apple iPhone 6 has yet to be introduced, those responding to the survey had to base their answers on speculation and rumors. These numbers could be different after Tuesday, once the Apple iPhone 6 is unveiled.
