Normally we reserve newsier items for BlackBerry News From The Wire. However, today I really want to share this. It’s a list, courtesy of RCR Wireless News, of the most popular handsets from the month of October. There have been some not-so-nice things said about the BlackBerry lately, from a study saying that the iPhone is more reliable to The New York Times’ not so great review of the Storm. Well, how about this one: The Curve was the most popular handset in October.
I’m clearly biased in this regard. I’ve had a Curve for about two months now, and I absolutely love it. It’s easily the best phone I’ve ever used, and there’s no way I would trade it in for an iPhone — which, of course, ranked No. 2 on the list. I know many Curve users feel the same.
As I noted back in May, when walking around WES I saw more Curves, by far, than any other model. It rocks that much. RIM also made the list with the Pearl, which clocked in at No. 6. This was one spot ahead of the HTC G1, a/k/a the first Android phone. Sandwiched between the Pearl and the iPhone were the LG Voyager, the Samsung Instinct, and the LG Dare.
I’ve played with the first two, and like the Pearl a ton better. I haven’t used the Dare yet, though, so have no basis of comparison. Good to see that BlackBerry remains on top. It’ll be interesting to see November’s list, which will include the Bold and the Storm.
