When's the last time you heard a big story about the latest Blackberry app? Drawing a blank? Well, apparently so are a lot of Blackberry users.

A recent survey from Crowd Science, whose main scope is researching Web traffic trends, has some interesting results from a group of polled Blackberry users.For example:

* Only 16% use their phone solely for personal use * Only 7% use it for business only * 32% would exchange it for a Nexus One * 40% would exchange it for an iPhone

"These results show that the restlessness of BlackBerry users with their current brand hasn't just been driven by the allure of iPhone. Rather, BlackBerry as a brand just isn't garnering the loyalty seen with other mobile operating systems," said Crowd Science CEO John Martin.

It's a wake-up call to Blackberry, which has failed to innovate its now-stale brand since the innovation of more captivating mobile operating systems.

In contrast, among iPhone and Android phone owners, 90% said they plan to stick their current system for their next phone.
