BlackBerry Curve is the top selling smartphone in the U.S. during the second quarter
Now we come to the top five. RIM is represented here again, this time with the BlackBerry Bold. The first 3G enabled BlackBerry is locked into AT&T in the U.S. and the price is $199.99. The Apple iPhone 3G is number four, including both 8GB and 16GB models. Available only at AT&T, the price is $99 for the 8GB version. The smartphone listed as number three might surprise you as it is RIM's BlackBerry Pearl (including the 8110, 8120 and 8130 but not the Pearl Flip). This model can be purchased at AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint and some pre-paid carriers. Price ranges from free to $99.99. Number two is the Apple iPhone 3GS including both 16GB and 32GB models. The amazing thing here is that this handset had been out for just a small part of the quarter, similar to the Pre. Available exclusively at AT&T, the phone will set you back $199 or $299 for the 16GB or 32GB version respectively. Drum roll please...the number one phone is the BlackBerry Curve including models 8310, 8320, 8330, 8350i and the 8900. Priced between $39.99 and $149.99, the handset can be bought at AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon and some pre-paid carriers.
There it is folks, the Top Ten. Since this is based on actual sales numbers, it is an objective list. But we do have that first amendment freedom of speech thingy, so feel free to give us your own top ten list.

I do see a lot of people with the curve. No offense to anybody who has one, but I really don't see what's so great about it. I thought the blackberry bold was a lot better, but that's just me.

Its because the bold is not as wide released accross carriers as the curve is. If it wasn't a Verizon exclusive, the Tour would be the top selling in the near future over the bold.

As previously stated, we had a typo showing the Touch Diamond in 10th place instead of the Touch Pro. We have already corrected it, but we Thank you for your comment.

With all the poser dumb smartphones out there, the true smart phones dominate the top 6.
