Almost half Dutch smartphone users would keep current OS

Monday 9 December 2013 | 11:52 CET | Author: Sanne de Bruyckere, Tine Niezink | Background
Dutch consumers are becoming less likely to change mobile phone operating system compared to a year ago, the latest data from the Telecompaper Consumer Panel shows. The same as last year, BlackBerry users are the most likely to change: 63 percent said that their next smartphone will probably have a different OS. This explains Blackberry's falling market share. Windows Phone/Mobile is gaining fans, with the number of existing Windows users saying they won't change OS rising from 27 percent in 2012 to 39 percent in 2013.
