Morgan Stanley: iPhone outselling G1

Six times more iPhones have been purchased

Apple's iPhone is outselling the T-Mobile's G1 - the handset running the Google Android platform - by six to one in the US, says Morgan Stanley.

The analyst firm is claiming 300,000 G1 handsets were sold in the US between October and December 2008, compared to 1.75m iPhones in the same period, which is about 5.9 times more.

However, Morgan Stanley analyst Kathryn Huberty says that outside of the mobile phone market, Apple isn't performing as well as expected. Sales of Macs are thought to have grown by 4 percent compared to last year, but that's below the 10 percent growth estimated for the PC market as a whole.
