Jared Company Survey: 70% BlackBerry Users Plan to Upgrade to BlackBerry 10 Smartphone


The Jared Company has been developing apps for BlackBerry for some time now and the company has at least a few apps that have huge download numbers. The company seems to be dipping into its email list to check whether its users will be upgrading to BlackBerry 10, most likely to gauge how much the company should invest in BlackBerry 10. Amazingly, 70% of the survey’s respondents said they’ll be upgrading their current BlackBerry smartphone to BlackBerry 10.

It’s important to note that this survey also helps ease the concerns of those who may think this doesn’t apply to the Western World. According to Steven Kader, founder and chief executive officer of The Jared Company (JaredCo), most are from the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom, as well as other countries where the BlackBerry App World™ storefront is available.

“Nearly 70 percent of the 5,732 survey respondents said they plan to buy a BlackBerry® 10 smartphone when they are ready to replace their current BlackBerry smartphone.”

    I have a Bold 9700 and will be upgrading as soon as it is available. I fight the temptation daily to switch over to iPhone simply because I could use the power and larger screen, but keep on telling myself, just a few more months and they’ll be here.

    I have no personal phone, just a company BB phone. I plan on getting the BB10 for personal use when it comes out. I’ve been told that my work can sync the phone with work emails if I request it.
