Europeans want smartphones, not BlackBerrys

Comments

A survey of the CIOs from the top 250 European companies show that they believe the BlackBerry will eventually be overtaken by smartphones as the business device of choice.

This data is being backed by a report from IT consultancy firm Avanade, which states that:

“European blue chips expect to be using five per cent fewer BlackBerry devices in three years’ time, and seven per cent more smartphones.”

At present date, 43 per cent of European companies have BlackBerrys, 36 per cent use smartphones and 25 per cent use 3G phones.
