Half Of Canadian Pre-Registrations For BlackBerry Came From iPhone, Android Users
By: Jordan #$%$
With the debut of BlackBerry’s new BB10 OS and its accompanying handsets, many have questioned whether the revamp is enough to pull iPhone and Android enthusiasts into the BlackBerry fold. But a new research note from CIBC analyst Todd Coupland suggests that BlackBerry may be appealing to users on other platforms just as much as it’s exciting loyal BlackBerry customers.
“In Canada 50% of preregistration at the carriers are not currently Blackberry users,” Coupland said.
If those numbers are even close to being accurate then BBRY will be off to the races.....the bear analysts have been citing BB10 as "Good for BlackBerry users and that's it".....these kinds of numbers will blow the whole game open....very encouraging if you are a long....sleepless nights if you are short.
That is our ace in the hole. People are tired of two 5 year old OS dominating their lives and mobile experience. They have an apetitie for something new. I am talking about serious people, adults, people who don't have 6 hours to wait in line for a phone because they actually lead productive lives and have jobs. I believe many old BBRY users will come back to Black. They left reluctantly.
