The NPD Group issued a press release today revealing that the Apple iPhone is now ranked #1 in consumer phone sales for the 3rd quarter of 2008. The iPhone surpassed Motorola's RAZR phone which had been ranked #1 for the previous 12 quarters.
"The displacement of the RAZR by the iPhone 3G represents a watershed shift in handset design from fashion to fashionable functionality," said Ross Rubin, director of industry analysis for NPD. "Four of the five best-selling handsets in the third quarter were optimized for messaging and other advanced Internet features."
NPD bases their data on online surveys each month that are projected to represent the entire population of U.S. consumers age 18 and over.
The iPhone and RAZR were followed by the RIM Blackberry Curve, LG Rumor and LG enV2 in the top 5 ranking.

If a company pays to place it's product in a movie or a TV show, you think that's a good reason to buy it?
It doesn't mean jack, it's marketing.
Here educate yourself.
"Product placement, or embedded marketing, is a type of advertising, in which promotional advertisements placed by marketers using real commercial products and services in media, where the presence of a particular brand is the result of an economic exchange. It is also known as product integration, especially when the product becomes integral to the plot. When a product is not part of an economic exchange, it is called a product plug. A few countries, notably the United Kingdom, do not permit product placement in domestically produced films.
Product placement appears in plays, film, television series, music videos, video games and books. Product placement occurs with the inclusion of a brand's logo in shot, or a favorable mention or appearance of a product in shot. This is done without disclosure, and under the premise that it is a natural part of the work. Most major movie releases today contain product placements. The most common form is movie and television placements and more recently computer and video games. Recently, websites have experimented with in-site product placement as a revenue model."

I may comment on the iPhone in a negative way, but what I love about it is that it never crashes. I do wish you could have had the option to have folders in the main window, but that will confuse a lot of people.
The APP STORE does not suck. This is a fact.
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2008After owning for 2 months. Safe yourselves some headaches.
Safari crashes constantly
Keyboar... more"The appstore is a joke, nothing worth buying cause Apple blocks anything they don't like."
"Screen gets cluttered & hard to find what you want if you add to many apps"
