It appears the the LG Voyager had a very good November. According to a study conducted by Compete, a Boston-based Internet analytics company, the Voyager was the most-shopped cell phone during the last month. While Compete's definition of "most shopped" is a tad loose--the number of unique visitors to a handset's detail page on a carrier Web site--it's still noteworthy that a model only launched in November would beat out even the super-hyped Apple iPhone, which won fourth place. The Voyager also did better than the most shopped handset from November 2006. According to Compete's blog, it attracted 131 percent more visitors than the Samsung SGH-T609 had. (Compete didn't release raw numbers).
After the Voyager, the other Top 10 shopped phones from November were a diverse lot. The Sidekick Slide took the No. 2 spot, followed by (in order) the Samsung SGH-T629, the iPhone, the Sidekick LX, the Sidekick ID, the LG Venus, the Sony Ericsson Z310a, the Sony Ericsson W580i, and the Pantech C150. And in case you're counting carriers, that's four AT&T phones, four T-Mobile handsets, and two Verizon Wireless models. Poor Sprint.
Complete also compiled a list of the most-shopped smartphones in November. The iPhone earned the top spot here, which makes much more sense than its number four position (though I'm not sure why Complete included it on both lists). The remaining top 10 in order where AT&T's Pantech Duo, the RIM BlackBerry Pearl, Verizon's Samsung SCH-i760, AT&T's Motorola Q9h, a refurbished RIM BlackBerry Pearl, the T-Mobile Dash, AT&T's RIM Blackberry Curve 8310, T-Mobile's RIM BlackBerry Curve 8320, and the AT&T 8525.
