iPhone Tops BlackBerry in Worldwide Sales (2010 Q3)

"Apple has for the first time outpaced Blackberry-maker Research in Motion in global smartphone sales thanks to the success of its iPhone 4, a report said Friday.Industry tracker IDC said Apple sold 14.1 million iPhone units in the third quarter while Canada's Research in Motion shipped 12.4 million Blackberry devices." 

Interesting statistic. I am seeing more and more iPhones wherever I travel. However, it seems to me that the BlackBerry still rules in the corporate world. Just get on an airplane and count the numbers of (business-looking) people using BlackBerries, and then count the comparable number of iPhone users. No contest, in this admittedly unscientific poll. But, to put it all into perspective, of 340.5 million phones sold in this time period, Nokia sold 110.4 million, Samsung sold 71.4 million, with LG coming in a distant third at 28.4 million. Apple is fourth. I'm struggling to remember when I last saw an ad for a Nokia phone, but obviously however they're marketing their products is still working. Anyone out there own a Nokia phone?

Why Bother Changing Anything?

"The LG Arena KM900, slated for a Europe release this March, is about as close as you can get to the iPhone without releasing a straight-up clone. Actually, scratch that. The KM900 is just as convincing as most iPhone clones out there. Even the icons, like those for music, calling, the calendar, calculator and settings are frighteningly close to Apple design."

The image above was posted on Gizmodo and I have to say were I the average John Q. Citizen who didn't really know much better, I would definitely say that was an iPhone I was looking at. It's one thing to borrow an innovative design (as Mark from Gizmodo notes, poppy colors and big buttons make great UI sense on a phone) and completely another to just rip one off. Then again, this is LG we're talking about. They're not exactly the most innovative company on earth to begin with.
