According to an IDC report, the BlackBerry Curve, once again takes the number 1 spot for the most sold smartphone in the United States. Not only is the the BlackBerry Curve king of the hill, 4 other BlackBerry devices round out the top 10. That being said, I have to call BS on these numbers.
For some strange reason IDC decided to lump all of various BlackBerry Curve models into one big group. When they say that the BlackBerry Curve is the number one selling smartphone in America what they really mean is the BlackBerry Curve 8300, 8900, and 8500 series devices were number 1. I don’t have any particular issues with how IDC does their math expect for the fact that IDC didn’t lump the iPhone 3G S, which came in second place, and the iPhone 3G, which came in fourth place, together.
Seeing how RIMarkable is a BlackBerry blog, I take every chance I get to tout how the BlackBerry is the most dominate smartphone in the United States. It always makes for interesting debate in the comments. 5 BlackBerry devices making the top 10 clearly illustrates this point. From this report, however, I don’t know that there is enough evidence to say that the BlackBerry Curve is the number one selling smartphone. It would be better to say that the BlackBerry Curve line-up is the best selling line-up of smartphones in the U.S.
