According to AllThingsD, a recent survey asked customers what smartphone they wouldn’t buy under any circumstances. 20 percent aren’t interested in iPhones; 31 percent wouldn’t deign to carry an Android. A whopping 71 percent said they’d never buy a BlackBerry–no way, no how, not even if it came preloaded with Mad Men spoilers and a box of chocolate-covered cherries.

Pretty soon it’s just going to be a handful of Canadians and Eric Schmidt stubbornly holding down the fort. Sorry, Canada.
