BlackBerry Curve Outselling iPhone 3G in Q1 2009

NPD Group on Monday reported that Research In Motion's BlackBerry Curve outsold Apple's iPhone to become the top-selling consumer smartphone in the US in first quarter of 2009.

According to CNET:
NPD attributed the recent BlackBerry sales surge to an aggressive "buy one, get one free" promotion for the phone by carrier Verizon Wireless. It helped boost RIM's share of the consumer smartphone market 15 percent to capture nearly 50 percent of the market in the first quarter, NPD said in a statement.
