By staying exclusively with AT&T, Apple’s i-phone falls to #2 in smartphone rankings. RIM’s Blackberry Curve, with the help of being available on 4 carriers and an aggressive 2 for 1 promotion by Verizon, takes over the top spot with several other Blackberries showing up in the top 5.
Will Apple rebound when it releases a new version of the iPhone? Will Apple cut a deal with Verizon that will take it back to the top? Has Apple tapped its core market and growth will be more difficult going forward? Will future growth for Apple be about price? What do/will businesses need to know to make the best decisions about their wireless needs as the market continues to evolve?
