One In Four US Smartphones Is An iPhone

Tech-industry analysts Canalys recently took a global look at the smartphone hardware/software markets.  Apple got some good news: as of the third quarter of 2010, the iPhone is the top-selling smartphone in the United States. It’s 5.5 million phones sold edged the House of Jobs past RIM/Blackberry for the very first time (26.2% vs. 24.4, respectively).

That’s the good news.  The bad news is that combined US sales of all Android phones walloped both iPhones and Blackberries: 9.1 million units, for a market share of 43.6%.

As for the rest of the world, Nokia still commands a 33% market share — but here, too, the iPhone nosed by Blackberries, 17% to 15%.
