The BlackBerry may be losing some of its appeal among Smartphone users.

Market researcher Crowd Science says 40-percent of BlackBerry users surveyed are willing to switch to an iPhone when their current contracts expire. Nearly a third say they would switch to Google's Android-powered Nexus One.

BlackBerrys have been popular among business users.

The survey finds that a quarter of BlackBerrys are used for both business and personal use. However two-thirds of iPhones are used for both.
