    $BBRY is running a user upgrade survey of existing BlackBerry users, on whether the Q10 or Z10 is preferred. So far Q10 is leading near 75%

    • Herr Hansa: It's not news Noodlez, but it is interesting. Felt it was worth sharing in a stock talk. I am slightly surprised the Q10 is more preferred.

    • Gene Chan, CFA: So according to them, 50% of new buyers of Z10 were from other platforms. So multiply the Z10 votes by 2

    • Gene Chan, CFA: and you'll have Q10:Z10 sales ratio of approx 1.5:1

    • Gene Chan, CFA: Assuming Q10 does not score any converts from other platforms.

    • Herr Hansa: Interesting Gene. Perhaps a keyboard device is important to these users. We may see better Q10 sales than Z10 sales, at least in the US.

    • losbronces: jay--I think Detwiler's analyst just made the numbers up, nothing behind them at all.

    • HFI: I conducted my own surveys when I was at the fairfax annual shareholder meeting. Most users are waiting for q10.
