    I have no idea. I posted these links because it seems every news article tells a different story. Just goes to show you have to be careful what information you use. I saw another headline kind of news story a while back that had a different take on supposedly the facts. Each one was way different.

    Not only is it in the numbers it is in what you are measuring. RIM is #4 in the WORLD with 10.6 million SHIPPED. Apple is #1 manufacturer in the US with 8.8 million SALES.

    RIM is a Canadian company. It can't be the number one US company.

    It doesn't really matter really. Why should I care if RIM sells more, makes more, ships more devices than anyone? It doesn't affect me any.

    The articles are not contradicting themselves. They are taking different measurements.
    Sometimes the devil is in the details.

    Poor Motorola being compared to two fruit brand at a bad time.

    Anyhow, power to North America once again. I think the Koreans and Finnish have taken top spots for too long and it's about time the industry changes with innovation coming from North America.

    This. What the top selling manufacturer really doesn't matter, especially with how fast things can change. As long as the manufacturer of my phone is not going bankrupt and can afford to keep developing improvements, it's all good.

    With all due respect,
    Sold and Shipped are interchangeable, in this scenario, so RIM still is out performing Apple, as Shipped for RIM means Sold to dealers, but not to end users, Sold for Apple means sold to dealers, not to end users.


    WHAT this does say how ever is in the top 10 world wide manufacturers Apple is for sure in it, if not just outside of the top 5, which is a good thing for Smartphone fans
