Default iPhone Tops BlackBerry in Worldwide Sales (2010 Q3)

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20101029/tc_afp/worldittelecommobileapplerimidc' target='_blank'>http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/2010102...bileapplerimidc</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Apple has for the first time outpaced Blackberry-maker Research in Motion in global smartphone sales thanks to the success of its iPhone 4, a report said Friday.Industry tracker IDC said Apple sold 14.1 million iPhone units in the third quarter while Canada's Research in Motion shipped 12.4 million Blackberry devices."*</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1288360737.usr17748.jpg" /></p><p>Interesting statistic. I am seeing more and more iPhones wherever I travel. However, it seems to me that the BlackBerry still rules in the corporate world. Just get on an airplane and count the numbers of (business-looking) people using BlackBerries, and then count the comparable number of iPhone users. No contest, in this admittedly unscientific poll. But, to put it all into perspective, of 340.5 million phones sold in this time period, Nokia sold 110.4 million, Samsung sold 71.4 million, with LG coming in a distant third at 28.4 million. Apple is fourth. I'm struggling to remember when I last saw an ad for a Nokia phone, but obviously however they're marketing their products is still working. Anyone out there own a Nokia phone?*</p>

Nokia does a lot of product placement. Watch any Hollywood film, from The Matrix to The Dark Knight, and you'll see Nokia phones.
