The amazing 3rd quarter for the Apple iPhone keeps claiming victims of the competition.  Today the NPD group is saying that even the once mighty Motorola Razr has fallen to the mighty iPhone.

Apple’s iPhone 3G surpassed the top-ranked Motorola RAZR as the leading handset purchased by adult consumers* in the U.S. in the third quarter (Q3) of 2008. RAZR had been ranked by NPD as the top-selling consumer handset for the past 12 quarters.

The top handset models in rank order, based on unit sales in Q3, were as follows:

 
1. Apple iPhone 3G
2. Motorola RAZR V3 (all models)
3. RIM Blackberry Curve (all models)
4. LG Rumor
5. LG enV2

 Not bad Apple, not bad.
