Apple iPhone 3G has surpassed Motorola’s Razr to become the best selling mobile handset in the US. Approx 7 million iPhones were sold in the last quarter surpassing Motorola Razr as well as the BlackBerry Curve.
According to NPD (leading wireless research firm) the top handset models in rank order, based on unit sales in Q3, were as follows:
However, here in India, thanks to the insane and absurd price, Apple has managed to sell only 4000 handsets. This is a matter of shame both for Apple as well as the carriers (Airtel & Vodafone) that the world’s favourite handset is out of reach of more than 90% people in the world’s 2nd largest telecom market.
Instead of collectively sorting out the issue, Airtel & Vodafone are putting all the blame on Apple. They say that Apple controls the price of iPhone 3G in India and they have no say in it. Apparently, these guys haven’t heard of a thing called “contract”.
In this game of cat and mice, the end losers are the customers.
