iPhone could become top handset in U.S. in 3-6 months, says analyst

Barry Gilbert, vice president of Strategy Analytics’ BuyerTRAX, has said that iPhone sales of 1.6 to 1.7 million in the holiday quarter would likely make it the top-selling handset in the U.S. “The iPhone has momentum that is basically unparalleled,” says Gilbert. In a Forbes article comparing sales of the iPhone to the Motorola RAZR, the analyst claims that the iPhone is gaining momentum faster than the now-ubiquitous RAZR, which reportedly sold 750,000 units in the first 90 days. “If you add up all the RAZR products, it’s still the leading family,” says Gilbert. “But if you look at any given model, like the v3, the iPhone seems to have surpassed that.” Apple sold 1.12 million iPhones in its last fiscal quarter.
