iPhone 5 Loses Out To Blackberry Touch In UK Survey

A poll over two phones, the iPhone 5 and the Blackberry Touch, that have yet been announced, let alone go on sale and on which we know almost nothing for sure (as in official specifications) has yielded one winner, the RIM model.

The survey was carried out by goodmobilephones using a sample of 901 people in the UK. 53 per cent said that they'd rather have the Blackberry Touch otherwise known as the Monaco or Monza rather than the iPhone 5 which attracted 42 per cent of the respondents favours.

A tiny five per cent said that they would buy neither; one of the intriguing facts of the survey is that 38 per cenf of the respondents actually owned an iPhone while 34 per cent had a Blackberry, which is far higher than the UK average.

Pictures of the Blackberry Touch have emerged, courtesy of BGR, as well as a few specs; it is rumoured to come with Blackberry OS 6.1, a 1.2GHz CPU, 768MB RAM, a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive display without SureTouch, a 5-megapixel camera with HD video capture as well as near field communication (NFC) onboard.

As for the iPhone 5, the fact that it will run on the Apple A5 system on chip is a quasi-certainty but other than that, there's only speculations over the screen size, the type of camera sensors used etc.
