Blackberry has strong quarter vs. Palm and iPhone

Μας αρέσει ή οχι το Blackberry έρχεται πρώτο για μέχρι στιγμή για το 2009 σύμφωνα με το NPD group.


Το NPD Group Inc. είπε ότι αυτό το quarter το top 5 είναι ως εξής:
1) BlackBerry Curve
2) Apple’s iPhone 3G (all models)
3) BlackBerry Storm
4) BlackBerry Pearl (all models except flip)
5) T-Mobile G1

Like it or not, the Blackberry did have a strong quarter according to NPD. The Blackberry comes in more varieties, often much cheaper than the iPhone and it is available on every wireless network – including what many percieve to be the best in the US, Verizon. Apple is, so far, sticking to just AT&T.
An aggressive “buy-one-get-one” promotion by Verizon Wireless helped Research in Motion’s BlackBerry Curve move past Apple’s iPhone to become the best-selling consumer smartphone in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2009. RIM’s consumer smartphone market share increased 15 percent to nearly 50 percent of the smartphone market in the first quarter versus the prior quarter, as Cupertino-based Apple Inc.’s and Sunnyvale-based Palm Inc.’s share both declined 10 percent each.
