    Not too impressive IMHO.... The Curve and iPhone have been out way longer than the Droid.

    Yep... I'll wait till 2010 Q1 reports to make a determination. Even then it won't surprise me if the Droid (or any Moto) doesn't break the top three. The others have a MUCH larger customer base and a better name behind them (Moto has all but disappeared as an 'in' manufacturer over the last few years).
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    Droid came out mid Q4 while iPhone and BB were already out long before Q4 Wouldn't that technically make Droid #1??

    Uh, sorry folks. Arguing that a phone enjoys an advantage because it's been in the market longer makes very little sense. Older models don't sell better; they are overtaken by newer models.

    No doubt the BlackBerry brand name helps the Curve (and other BB models). But the reason that RIM dominates the "smart phone" market is that it provides solid support for business users. The fact that the Droid's support for Microsoft exchange is, ahem, less than stellar and that it's virtually impossible to secure access to email on the Droid are just two reasons that it's not yet ready for prime time as a business device.

    Never said that...I simply meant the Droid had 2 months less of time being available for purchase....has nothing to do with recognition...it simply was available for half the time in Q4 which means if you take into account the time it wasn't available it would probably have been #1....I guess Q1 2010 results will be a better determination.

    It would be like if they started showing iPad sales results now saying...Look! They haven't sold a single unit yet!! Clearly the competition is better!

    Correct, but nowdays people are smart and educated when it comes to technology, so if it is a "best seller" it's the best phone.

    The closest thing I have seen come to the Droid, performance-wise, is Chuck Norris...and even then...
