Raymond James survey

A recent Raymond James survey has asked customers, among other things, what device they would never use, the options being BlackBerry, iPhone, or Android devices.

BlackBerry gathered quite a few of the respondents’ votes in the Raymond James survey, quoted by AllThingsD. A whopping 71.4 percent of the 250 people who took the survey said that there is nothing that would get them to buy a BlackBerry device.

Android devices came in second, at 31.3 percent, and iPhone came in last (or first, whichever way you want to put it), at 19.7 percent. Of course, the 250 people pool the Raymond James surveyed is not that much, but looking at operating systems’ market shares, there might be something into it.

On the other hand, BlackBerry seems to do everything it can to repair its image and make its new devices, running the BlackBerry 10 OS, a success. To jump start the platform’s development, BlackBerry even allowed Android apps to be ported and released in its app store (around 20% of the 100.000 apps currently available).

Do you think BlackBerry will ever manage to make a comeback? What device you would never purchase?
