Apple’s iPhone the No. 2 Smartphone in United States

I posted earlier about the popularity of the iPhone in Japan. Now analysts have said that the iPhone is the second most-used smartphone in America. Research in Motion’s Blackberry is the most popular, with about 15 million users saying that they use a Blackberry as their primary phone, followed by 9 million Americans saying that the iPhone is their primary phone. Phones with Microsoft’s Windows Mobile are used by about 7.1 million Americans.

These studies are not a measure of sales velocity, accounting instead for the installed base of phone users. The iPhone has been outselling Windows Mobile phones for some time now.

Things are not looking good for Windows Mobile phones. According to a report, prospective smartphone buyers are more leaning towards the iPhone or Android-based phones.
