Over half of touchphone users want to go back to buttons

Posted on Monday, November 02 2009 @ 21:48:37 CET by


A survey by market watcher Canalys delivers some amusing results. The company questioned 3,000 cell phone users in the UK, France and Germany and found that 38 percent want a touchscreen on their next phone, and another 16 percent wants a phone stylus-operated touchscreen. Around 54 percent are craving for a touchscreen on their next phone, but the funny thing is that 53 percent of people who already own a touchscreen phone will not be buying one next time round:
A surprising 53 per cent of folk who already own a touchscreen phone said they won't be buying one next time round. Apple and HTC both had much larger numbers of users who who said they will remain loyal to touchscreen technology, Canalys noted, though we wonder whether that's more to do with brand preference than favouring touchscreens, especially in Apple's case.

Other vendors who have offered touchscreen phones fared less well. For example, fewer than a third of Sony Ericsson touchcreen owners said their next phone would use the same kind of UI. Fortunately, for SE, Nokia, RIM and co, they have plenty of button-based phones for these folk to turn to.
