iPhone 3G overtakes RAZR as top-selling consumer handset in U.S.

The iPhone 3G has overtaken the Motorola RAZR to become the leading handset purchased by adult consumers in the U.S. in the third quarter, according to The NPD Group. “The displacement of the RAZR by the iPhone 3G represents a watershed shift in handset design from fashion to fashionable functionality,” said Ross Rubin, director of industry analysis for NPD. “Four of the five best-selling handsets in the third quarter were optimized for messaging and other advanced Internet features.” The RAZR had held the top position for the last three years, but ranked second in the third quarter of 2008, followed by the BlackBerry Curve, LG Rumor, and LG enV2.
