Survey guages BlackBerry Kickstart and Thunder hype

Comments

BlackBerry Kickstart, Thunder survey

Changewave recently surveyed 3,567 consumers to see how many are actually interested in the flip BlackBerry due in September or the touchscreen BlackBerry Thunder due sometime in November. 13% were somewhat likely to pick up a Bold or a Thunder, while a slightly lower 11% were somewhat likely to pick up a Kickstart. 4% of respondents were very likely to get the BlackBerry 9000 while 2% were very likely to nab the Kickstart or Thunder. Existing BlackBerry customers were two to three times more likely to grab the upcoming models, while Palm, Samsung and Motorola users are ripe for the switching. Those are some reasonably hopeful numbers, but it’s still hard to compete with the iPhone hype. What do you guys think – will the new form factors offer enough competition for the iPhone?

    I’d buy the Bold if they plan to one day make it for CDMA also.. I won’t use AT&T! The touch-screen one had better be “one hellava” device to impress when released with all the other touch screen phones out there, so not interested. That may change hands-on. Still mixed on the flip.
