Smartphones Outsell Standard Handsets in U.S. Market
The NPD Group reported Thursday that for the first time ever, more than half the handsets that U.S. consumers purchased were smartphones -- with first-quarter sales up eight percent from the prior quarter.
Apple's iPhone accounted for 14 percent of the U.S. mobile-phone market, besting major smartphone rivals HTC, Motorola and Research In Motion.
