The race for the top smartphone based on sales is always fun to watch, and figures released today show RIM BlackBerry topping Apple’s iPhone in the first quarter of this year. Verizon has been running an aggressive “buy one get one (BOGO) free” promotion that is credited with nabbing three of the top five smartphone slots. The BlackBerry Curve gets the top nod over the iPhone due to its availability on all U.S. carriers. The oft-maligned Storm is still a hot item, as it makes No. 3 on the list.
The top five list:
- RIM BlackBerry Curve (all 83XX models)
- Apple iPhone 3G (all models)
- RIM BlackBerry Storm
- RIM BlackBerry Pearl (all models, except flip)
- T-Mobile G1
