Strategy Analytics reports that AT&T (T) and Apple (AAPL) will deliver 1.1 million iPhones in Q3, bringing total sales of the handset to 1.325 million units. "The iPhone has become AT&T’s top selling device, commanding some 13 percent of AT&T’s overall handset sales, and the 4th top selling handset in the US market," according to Barry Gilbert, VP of the Strategy Analytics.
AT&T’s top seller, and in such a short time.
And, in first place among all handsets sold in the US is the Motorola (MOT) RAZ3, one of its newer phones. Sales of the device has apparently been slowing as competitors come to market with new multimedia phones. But, if the RAZR3 is doing well, it could be the first leg in a turnaround at Motorola which has seen its global market share drop from 22% just over a year ago to the middle teens in Q2.
Motorola may be sneaking up on Wall St with good news and could have its first decent quarter in a long time.
