Being a BlackBerry lover, it gives me great pride to see Research In Motion claim three of the top ten spots in regards to the most popular phones in the US.  In a survey conducted by AvianResearch L.L.C., the wireless phone maker’s BlackBerry Curve took the first place spot (and has since May of 2008, might I add), with the BlackBerry Storm coming in third place, and the BlackBerry Bold arriving in sixth place.  As a bit of background on the research method, the numbers come from 100 representatives and store managers from the four largest wireless carriers in the US.  Furthermore, the survey results showed that between Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, 85% of the wireless market is represented (in regards to subscriber numbers).

The fact that RIM’s devices are scoring in the top ten of a consumer survey is certainly a sign that the company is making significant inroads in the non-business market.  The full list can be found below.
