The iPhone has unsurprisingly taken top spot as the nation's favourite phone in a new survey from the University of Salford.
The research, which asked 2,000 users about their favourite devices, was conducted by the university's Computer Networking and Telecommunications Research department and designed to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the mobile phone this year.
The iPhone came out as the most popular device, with 13 per cent of the votes, followed by the Nokia 3210 (8.5 per cent) and the Nokia 6310 (8.4 per cent).
Nokia devices made a strong showing in the top ten, with a total of five devices, while Motorola appeared three times and BlackBerry's 8300 Curve handset ranked in sixth place.
"The Apple iPhone is a design classic and has truly transformed the design of mobile phones," said the department's Nigel Linge.
"Personally I'm nostalgic for the Motorola StarTAC, which was the world's first clam shell phone but it fell outside of our top ten, being in twelfth place."
'Iconic' is a label not often used for handsets that have only been around for a couple of years, but with its stylish appearance and responsive touchscreen functionality, the iPhone has seen a host of imitators since its arrival in June 2007.
The Palm Pre, Samsung's Omnia and the HTC Touch have all tried with varying degrees of success to follow on the coat tails of the Apple device. We shall see if its forthcoming iPad device will have the same impact on the burgeoning tablet market.
