According to Nielsen's data, the iPhone was the top-selling phone in 2009. Three BlackBerries, four LGs, and one Motorola and Samsung also made the list. But which Motorola? The Droid?Nope. The Droid didn't make the list. Remember, it only went on sale barely seven weeks ago. There's no way it could make the top ten list, not unless every Verizon customer bought one immediately.
No, we're talking about the Motorola RAZR. You know, the hottest phone in 2004? Yes, that RAZR. It's still in the top ten list. In fact, in ranks number three (I believe it was number one in 2008). That includes all the variants of the RAZR V3, which are the V3, V3c, V3m, V3i, V3i DG, V3. That covers most of the carriers in the U.S. Amazing the legs this phone has. It cost a hefty $400 when it first hit the market. No longer. It can be had for a song and a dance these days, which explains its high position on the chart.
It's also no surprise to see the BlackBerry 8300 Curve series in the number two spot. These are very popular BlackBerries, and are definitely the model I see most being used out in the real world. Here's the rest of the list from Nielsen.
