The news on BlackBerry Cool has been a little glum today, so this item should be a welcome – and surprising – pick me up. AvianResearch has published a list ranking the 10 most popular handsets in the United States for the month of October. AvianResearch derives its ranking from the responses of 100 service representatives and store managers at retail stores of the four major U.S. wireless carriers. Which handset was at the top of the list? The BlackBerry Curve.
According to AvianResearch, the BlackBerry Curve has topped the list from May through October. In addition, the BlackBerry Pearl, which placed sixth during the month of October, was number one in April. With results like this, things can’t be all bad for RIM. You can see the entire list after the jump.
