Apple Surpasses Motorola, Now No. 1 U.S. Phone Maker
Based on the quarterly reports of both Apple and Motorola, it appears that Apple is now the nation's largest provider of mobile phones. Apple sold 8.8 million iPhones in its most recent quarter, and Motorola sold 8.5. Motorola has held the top spot for years. According to Forbes, Motorola sold more than 46 million RAZR phones in the first quarter of 2006. Since then, its sales dropped steadily in the face of fierce competition. Despite Motorola's surprise profit posted this quarter, it now ranks second among U.S.-based mobile phone makers. For comparison, RIM, which is based in Canada, shipped 10.5 million handsets in its most recent quarter. Nokia remains the overall world handset leader. It sold 107.8 million handsets, though its share of the U.S. market ranks below 10%

I'm no koolaid drinker but until Win7 phone is released, it is the best device out there.
