iPhones Were the Top 3 Smartphones of 2011

According to comScore‘s “2012 Mobile Future in Focus” whitepaper, Apple’s iPhones were the three most popular smartphones in the United States in the year of 2011. As you can see in the chart above, the device in first place was the iPhone 4, the GSM model — for AT&T — of which was released in June of 2010, followed by the CDMA model — for Verizon — in February of 2011. Following the iPhone 4 was the iPhone 3GS, which has been available since June of 2009 and was made free with a contract on AT&T back in October of last year. Lastly, the iPhone 4S, which was recently released in October of 2011, trails behind the 3GS — this is most likely because the latter is a free device…

Surprisingly, RIM’s BlackBerry Curve 8530 occupies in fourth place, even in the light of RIM’s recent failures and the company nearly falling apart. In fifth place lies the HTC EVO 4G, which was Sprint’s more popular phone in the past years — mainly because it was the carrier’s flagship Android smartphone and was the first of their devices to tout 4G WiMAX capability.
