BlackBerry fends off iPhone in North American Q3 sales

Comments

CanalysAlthough RIM’s third quarter numbers aren’t being released for another 3 days, Canalys’ shipping data has revealed that the iPhone has already beaten Windows Mobile’s market share in North America, but BlackBerry still holds on to the top dog status. The iPhone’s 27% capture of the smartphone market is especially surprising considering it’s still not in Canada or Mexico, and is limited to only AT&T. While North America’s a huge market, it’s a big world, and if the numbers included international results, the picture would look just a little different. It’ll be interesting to see what Q4 looks like after the Christmas sales have all been tallied up…

    Given that the iPhone is primarily a consumer device and there are no discounts given on the iPhone nor bulk corporate/enterprise purchases available. It pretty much handed every other smartphone manufacturer their lunch.

    Are these unit or $ sales? If the former it’s less surprising considering the price of the Iphone.
