CHART OF THE DAY: iPhone 'Surprisingly Popular' For Business
Business Insider: RIM's (RIMM) BlackBerry is still the go-to smartphone for business use. But thanks to employee-owned iPhones, Apple (AAPL) is cracking into the corporate market, and is "surprisingly popular," according to Goldman Sachs.
Notably, some 50% of iPhone owners responding to a Goldman survey say they use their iPhone for "both personal and business use." We imagine that would have been a lower percentage even a year ago

iPhone Claims 32% of Handset Industry Operating Profits
With the iPhone, Apple is doing to the handset industry what it has done to the PC industry with the Mac: Claiming an inordinate share of profits relative to revenue.
Bernstein Research analyst Toni Sacconaghi estimates that Apple (AAPL), though it is only the fifth-largest handset vendor, claimed nearly a third of handset industry profits in the first half of 2009 (see table below; click to enlarge).
“Our analysis indicates that Apple’s iPhone accounted for only 8% of handset industry revenues but 32% of industry operating profits in 1H09,” Sacconaghi wrote in a note to clients today. “Even if we exclude the operating losses generated by Motorola and Sony Ericsson, Apple still accounted for 25% of industry profits. iPhone’s success is akin to Apple’s position in the PC industry–where the company enjoys an estimated 25% of industry profits, despite capturing only 6% of industry revenues.”
