iPhone second in Q3 smartphone market share

According to figures provided by Canalys and published by Symbian, the iPhone accounted for 27% of all smartphone sales in North America in Q3, besting the entire lineup of Windows Mobile-based smartphones, as well as others running Symbian, Linux, and Palm operating systems, and placing second only to the RIM Blackberry. The iPhone’s debut in second place (Q3 was the first full quarter of sales for the handset) is particularly notable because its competition was available from multiple carriers, and in Mexico in Canada, while the iPhone was only available in the region from AT&T in the U.S. Perhaps not coincidentally, Symbian has stopped publishing detailed stats on its Fast Facts web page, as it has done in the past, instead placing them in a separate, little publicized document.

But… the…  iPhone’s not a smartphone.  It’s just a feature phone with some very cool features.
