Avian Reasearch has published a top monthly retail report for handsets across America. The results are in and the Curve is at the top of the list! The runners up are the iPhone and the Storm. Nice going RIM, 2 out of the top 3.
The survey included answers from 100 retail managers and sales reps from AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile shops across the country. The results therefore don’t count any online, second hand, mail order and other sales channels. The top ten is as follows:
1. BlackBerry Curve
2. Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) iPhone
3. BlackBerry Storm
4. LG Voyager (up from 6th.)
5. LG Dare (down from 4th.)
6. BlackBerry Bold (down from 5th.)
7. Samsung Rant (new)
8. Samsung Behold (up from 9th.)
9. Samsung Instinct (up from 10th.)
10. LG Env2 (down from 8th.)
Do you think this list adequately represents what’s the best smartphone out there? Or are consumers easily duped into buying bad hardware?
