Congratulations to Apple to seem to be storming the Market with their products! Having recently had this discussion with our latest senior-level IT professional to take part in “The Interview” - Lorraine Campbell at LateRooms.com; it’s interesting to find people’s take on the iPhone vs. Blackberry vs. Android debate.
I’ve done a quick ‘phone survey’ in our offices, and the percentages are as follows; Android seems the least popular with 15% of Testing Circle employees owning one, Blackberry is a respectable second with 31%, but coming in solid first place with a whopping 54%, is Apple’s iPhone.
It would appear more that Blackberry’s are targeted towards business users as their security links are incredibly well developed - which is why I suppose all ‘critical’ organizations such as the Government, have standard issue Blackberry’s for all their employees. Having said that, the vastly popular ‘BB Messenger’ for Blackberry has also made it more of a ‘social phone’ too. It’s no secret that the iPhone dominates the market; from its GUI to its general functionality and added extras such as the App Store, it’s definitely a force to be reckoned with.
Working alongside a lot of Testers (who were not included in the poll) based in our Richmond Mobile Lab; we are around a lot of technology and a lot of mobile devices - and I can definitely say that the ‘Testers phone of choice’ is mostly definitely the Android. Asking them what it is about the Android, they all said that the ease of use is outstanding, the screen resolution is amazing and the graphics are insane!
Well I guess that the figures speak for themselves, and as Apple profits are skyrocketing it certainly tells a story synonymous with our poll here at Testing Circle!
