The iPhone is well-represented in the Northeast and Midwest, according to statistics released by Jumptap, a mobile ad network. The iPhone is also strong in Montana and Louisiana.

Android is very strong in the West, plus the rust belt of Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. BlackBerry remains strong around Washington, DC, with RIM being the provider of choice for government bureaucrats -- at least for now. Corporate-centric New York is also a stronghold for BlackBerry.

There doesn't seem to be any obvious correlation between iPhone or Android use and statistics like per capita income or population density. TechCrunch has the complete study. The chart above isn't particularly informative -- it doesn't give precise market share breakdowns -- but it is an interesting look at which states are over representing one brand or the other.

I live in Colorado and the funny thing is that I see Android phones predominantly.

Exactly what the graph suggests?

I don't care if it's dominant or not in my state. I only care that I'm able to carry an iPhone as my personal phone.

I've carried an HTC Evo (for work) long enough to know just how bad the Android UI is. Some of the shortcomings in Exchange integration are mind boggling.

For all I use the Evo for, it might as well be a dumbphone...

I can't help but laugh whenever I read someone saying "Heh, this graph is wrong. I never see anyone with an iPhone/Android/BB."

Dude, you're one person. You probably see .0001% of the population of the state in a week. Let alone how many of those .0001% you actually see with their cell phones out.

And to comment on the graph, I would love to see a 3G/Cellular strength map from the big 3 (Sprint/AT&T/VZ) over this, to see if phone choice is possibly correlated to carrier service, as some have suggested.

Strange, in Oklahoma, most people don't use an iPhone, BB or Android. The most popular choice at the moment is two tin cans and a bit of string.

I live in Blackberry country, apparently. Struck me as odd until I realized, oh yeah, Wall Street. It also makes sense that Blackberry dominates in the D.C area.

Blackberry was Old Smartphone, and the only people who had smartphones prior to the iPhone coming along were government and business types. By interia, they've stayed with Blackberry for the most part.

I have no idea what's going on in the Dakotas, Oregon, or Kansas. Probably a carrier thing.
