The Research and Consulting firm, IDC, listed the top-selling smartphone models in the US. It lists vendor sales to carriers and channels as well. So far it’s going on preliminary data. The actual numbers won’t be available till the end of the month. So let’s see what the firm says so far.
No 10 is the HTC Touch from Sprint, Nextel, and Verizon Wireless.
No 9 is the HTC Touch Pro from Sprint, Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and others.
No 8 is the Palm Pre from Sprint.
No 7 is the T-Mobile G1 by HTC from T-Mobile USA.
No 6 is the Research In Motion BlackBerry Storm from Verizon Wireless.
No 5 is the Research In Motion BlackBerry Bold from AT&T.
No 4 is the Apple iPhone 3G (both versions) from AT&T.
No 3 is the Research In Motion BlackBerry Pearl (all 81xx series, excluding the Flip) from AT&T, Sprint, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, and others.
No 2 is the Apple iPhone 3GS (both versions) from AT&T.
No 1 is the Research In Motion BlackBerry Curve (83xx series and 8900) from AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon Wireless, and others.
So what does that say? Research In Motion rules the smartphone world, and the BlackBerry Curve is still holding the number one position. I’m not surprised, though I’m very curious to see how the numbers change with the BlackBerry Tour 9630 entering the smartphone scene. I really like the Tour, it’s been very reliable, and I’m curious to see if it will rise to the top or come pretty close.
Anyone have any thoughts to share?
