Appleâ€™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 I understand why, if true, Verizon wants to support building a strong third platform.
Update 2012.06.04: Horace Dediu:
The concern has to be that rather than seeing the net adds growingâ€“as they have for two years with only two contiguous months of declineâ€“Android net adds have been falling for four months.
Eyeballing the last chart in Dediu’s article it looks like Windows Phone experienced the most net user gains since, well, quite a while. I wonder if carriers like Verizon is focused on pushing more Windows Phone.
