Most Verizon smartphone users are considering switching to the iPhone
You probably already guessed this, but here's some confirmation: the majority of Verizon's BlackBerry and Android users are considering switching to the Verizon iPhone. According to a study by uSamp, 25% of the respondents are 'very likely' to switch to the iPhone. Another 29% are 'somewhat likely' to switch.

Even more impressive was the fact that, of those customers that were 'very likely' to switch to the iPhone, 24% said they were willing to wait in line on its day of launch. Only the iPhone could elicit this kind of ship-jumping hysteria.

As you might have guessed, Android users are less likely to switch to the iPhone. As many as two-thirds of BlackBerry owners said that they were 'very likely' or 'somewhat likely' to switch to the iPhone. Those users cited BlackBerry shortcomings like the web browser, media, memory, camera quality, and the general interface. Among Android users, however, 44% were considering the switch.

These figures could spell trouble for Android, but the iPhone will be even more detrimental to RIM's footing at Verizon. With their grip gradually loosening from Big Red, they'll be counting on their PlayBook to regain their traction.
