iPhone outsells Nokia & BlackBerry in the US

Apple's new handset becomes top seller

Apple's iPhone was the top-selling selling smartphone in the US in July, according to research firm iSuppli.

The iPhone accounted for 1.8 percent of all mobile handset sales to US consumers that month - the first full month in which the iPhone was available.

Apple's device outsold the BlackBerry series, the entire Palm portfolio, and any individual Motorola, Nokia, Samsung or other smartphone model.

The analysts describe a typical demographic for US iPhone users: most purchasers in July were male, 35-years of age or younger and had college degrees.

One quarter of consumers who bought iPhones switched to AT&T.

ISuppli predicts 4.5 million iPhone sales this year, climbing to 30 million sales in 2011.
