Verizon: Half of Our First-Quarter Smartphone Sales Were iPhones
Apple’s iPhone continues to sell well at Verizon, though not quite as well as last quarter. Reporting first-quarter earnings largely in line with expectations this morning, Verizon said it sold 6.3 million smartphones.
Of those, 3.2 million were iPhones.
Now, that’s significantly less than the 4.3 million the carrier sold last quarter.
But remember: Last quarter saw record-setting iPhone sales of 37 million for Apple, driven by the launch of the iPhone 4S. So, while sales have certainly slowed, they’re impressive nonetheless.
After all, they represent more than half of Verizon’s smartphone business. And consider this: Verzion sold just 2.1 million 4G LTE-enabled smartphones during the same period — a million less than the iPhone, which is still 3G.
