Apple's 2+ year old iPhone 3GS is still selling strong

Apple's iPhone 3GS may be showing a few grey hairs on its chin (at least in terms of the lifespan of the average smartphone), but it's still a big seller in the United States according to The NDP Group. The market research firm just released its smartphone handset sales figures for the fourth quarter which show that the Apple iPhone 4 and the iPhone 3GS were the #1 and #2 bestselling smartphones for the third quarter.
 
Here are the top five smartphones:
  1. Apple iPhone 4
  2. Apple iPhone 3GS
  3. HTC EVO 4G
  4. Motorola Droid 3
  5. Samsung Intensity II
NPD's research also showed that the average selling price for smartphones (on contract) declined to $135 during Q3.

 
Apple's 8GB iPhone 3GS was selling for $99 with a two-year contract until the launch of the iPhone 4S. Now the phone is available for free with a two-year contract while the 8GB iPhone 4 has moved into the $99 spot.
