Funny iPhone and Blackberry Survey Results

iPhone vs. BB Survey Draws Some Interesting Conclusions

A recent survey released by Retrevo (an electronics shopping site) comparing iPhone and Blackberry users paints an interesting picture. The respondents are 445 iPhone and BlackBerry owners distributed across gender, age, income, and location in the US. Highlights include:

  • 35 percent of iPhone users would be turned off by a date with outdated gadgets.
  • iPhone owners use their phones more — they claim to consume more adult content, videos, news, and sports scores.
  • iPhone owners text more often than BlackBerry users.
  • iPhone owners claim to be more extroverted, bigger jocks, and more intellectual.

I use both a BlackBerry and an iPhone, so I'm not sure how I feel about the results of the survey. Do you agree with any of them? Are iPhone owners seriously more into porn that BlackBerry owners? Hmm . . .

I think it depends on the person. I am a Blackberryer and use my phone a lot for texting and BBM whereas some of my friends with the Iphone don't text as much with it. I disagree with this whole survey actually because I don't think a population that uses one item as opposed to another can be generalized as having a characteristic in greater abundance.

I just brought a Blackberry Curve 8530 and I also us an LG Lotus Android phone. I use the LG Lotus to access YouTube and Facebook. I access Twitter via Twitterberry on the Blackberry. I thought about switching to an iPhone but I changed my mind. I tried one out at the Apple Store, but I didn't like the interface. I use a Dell laptop with a wireless broadband modem. I use TweetDeck on my laptop. I am on the Sprint 4G network and have used a Blackberry for over a year and a half. I like the features on the Blackberry but I hate the trackball. My new Blackberry has no trackball which I love. Being an introverted geek, I guess I don't fit the profile of the typical iPhone user.

I knew a guy who had a porn video of himself on his blackberry. I love my iPhone but no way in hell am I superior than anyone else.

Well, that does look like it's trying to fulfill the steriotype that 90% of people who get iPhones instantly become d-bags.

Hmmm, it's a pretty small sample of people... I would agree that iPhone users DO text more, but only because they don't have BBM & PIN messaging so they have no choice.Not sure about the porn thing... Personally in my circle of friends, the iPhone users are mostly young, jockish guys and the BB users are more the professional type, so that could have something to do with it... the professionals may be nervous about accessing adult content on a handset owned by their company, or they may just have a nicer set-up at home so they don't have to watch their porn on a 4" screen lol
