The fact that Motorola’s RAZR is the best-selling mobile in America one of those inexplicable regional events that defies all logic. Americans just like it and its flimsy, feature-light charms. So much so that it’s consistently been the best-selling phone out there for the last three years.
But not any more, as recent stats have shown that Apple’s popular-with-everyone iPhone has overtaken it, shifting 6.8 million units in the last business quarter. The RAZR was pushed down to second and RIM’s Blackberry Curve came in third, followed by LG’s Rumour and enV2.
Apple itself told investors a few weeks ago that its phone division now rakes in a staggering 39% of its total revenue around the world, with the “new” iPhone 3G kick-starting sales after a perceived lull earlier in the year.
Motorola, meanwhile, recorded its seventh-straight period of sales decline.
