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.
I am sure they are. Some people will just want to have the newest and latest thing on the market. Some in the U.S. will make the switch also. They may find that brand loyalty isn't as important as some analysts thought.
