Survey shows 60 percent of latest AT&T WP converts coming from iPhone, Android

A poll covering done by WPCentral has shown some interesting data: of 3500 people "switching" to the Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC Titan II on the AT&T network, nearly 60 percent came from iPhone or Android.

29.2 percent came from iPhone, and 27.8 percent from Android. That's interesting as Apple always has an aura of perfection from its products, and those who would be called fanboys would agree.

While we've always thought that the more apps downloaded by a consumer, the less likely he or she would be to convert from iOS or Android to some other platform, specifically Windows Phone, it didn't seem to bother these users.

Blackberry users only made up 10 percent of the convertees, 12 percent came from Nokia's own Symbian, and 6 percent from webOS. What we had believed would be the biggest group of adopters, non-smartphone users, only made up 14 percent of those switching.

The Lumia 900 is still selling very well, showing up at No. 1 and No. 5 at Amazon Wireless at the time of this writing.

However, European carriers are not as happy with Nokia's latest offerings, saying the Lumia phones just aren't "good enough" to beat Android and iPhone.
