Today Wirefly published a list of the top 10 hottest selling phones of the summer and we pleased to report the Motorola Droid is #1! Android Phones dominated the list taking up 6 of the 10 spots. Much to our surprise the Droid X or Droid Incredible did not make an appearance on the list. This is due to the inventory issues that hampered the launch of both devices, and even today the lack of inventory continues to hurt sales.
“Android’s recent ascent as the operating system of choice, combined with Wirefly’s incredible pricing without the hassles of rebates, makes it no surprise that Android devices were among our best sellers this summer,” said Andy Zeinfeld, Chief Executive Officer of Simplexity, parent company of Wirefly.com. “In fact, had the entire country not experienced mass shortages of such highly-touted Android smartphones as the HTC Evo 4G, DROID Incredible and DROID X, it’s likely that more devices utilizing Google’s open source operating system would have made it on our list.”
Here's the complete Top 10 List:

  • 1. DROID by Motorola (Verizon Wireless)
  • 2. HTC Aria (AT&T)
  • 3. BlackBerry Bold 9700 (AT&T)
  • 4. Motorola Cliq XT (T-Mobile)
  • 5. Samsung Intercept (Sprint)
  • 6. Motorola BACKFLIP (AT&T)
  • 7. BlackBerry Curve 8530 (Verizon Wireless)
  • 8. LG Sentio (T-Mobile)
  • 9. Nuron 5230 (T-Mobile)
  • 10. LG Ally (Verizon Wireless)
