iPhone 3G is Top Smart Phone in Summer
The huge popularity of the iPhone -which moved more units in the summer months than any other smart phone- has caused Apple’s share of the U.S. smart phone market to soar from 11 percent to 17 percent in the last four months. That’s according to research from NPD Group, as cited by PC Magazine.
According to the data, the iPhone led two BlackBerry products, the Curve and Pearl, in the June-August market share rankings, with Palm’s Centro coming in fourth. The iPhone also caused many customers to switch to AT&T, and its low price lead to a decrease in the average price of smart phones.
