Share of business users in all US iPhone users

According to AT&T, 40 percent of its iPhone sales are to business users.

AT&T Inc said on Thursday that 40 percent of its iPhone sales since the beginning of the year have been to business customers, suggesting that iPhone is encroaching on an area dominated by Research in Motion's BlackBerry.

According to Analysts, AT&T, which started selling iPhone in 2007, has about 15 million iPhone users or 17 percent of its total customer base. RIM reported a total customer base of about 41 million for the BlackBerry in its most recent quarterly report. But as AT&T serves U.S. customers only, while RIM's customer base includes the United States and other countries, clear inference on the extent of encroachment is difficult to predict. --------
