Electronista: BlackBerry trumps iPhone in US smartphone sales

by Volker Weber

BlackBerries nearly dominated iPhones in US smartphone sales for the start of 2009, the NPD Group said today in a new study. The market researchers note that the top-selling phone line from the quarter ended in March was the BlackBerry Curve 8300 series, which edged out the iPhone 3G at second place. Of the top 5 phones, 3 were BlackBerries and included the touchscreen Storm in third place and the non-flip Pearl in fourth. The lone Android phone in the US, T-Mobile's G1, occupied the fifth spot.

Remember: market shares worldwide are poised to be very different.

I assume that is overall, meaning including corporate/fleet sales. I'd imagine there are a number of ongoing corporate contracts that it would take the iPhone a while to displace.

A couple of things to note: I think Curves are available without cameras, a key requirement for a fair amount of corporate contracts. Blackberries are available on all the major US Carriers, versus the iPhone just available on AT&T. Interesting to see the Pearl still selling well as well.
