Apple Bests RIM and Becomes #2 Smartphone Seller in World

The iPhone has allowed smartphone upstart Apple to attain second place in the worldwide sales wars. Sales reports note that the company recently jumped ahead of RIM (Research in Motion) with a 17.3% share of the market. RIM lands squarely at a 15.2% market share. Of course, neither company even gets close to Nokia’s massive 38.9% market share.
These numbers have a lot to do with the successful launch of the iPhone 3G, which has sold nearly 7 million units since it’s July 11 launch. Apple’s share of the entire cell phone market is now a respectable 2.3%.
