The iPhone sure is a great selling phone, and we even provided proof earlier today when we reported the iPhone being the top selling phone among all carriers. Its not like we would expect anything less, especially when a company can manage 37 million iPhone sales within a quarter. If you can’t believe the information we’ve reported thus far, than your likely not going to believe that AT&T has sold more iPhones than smartphone combined.
Canaccord Genuity analyst Mike Walkley has reported to AllThingsD that, “iPhones are outselling all other smartphones combined at Sprint and AT&T.” Now that’s amazing that one company, producing two phones, the iPhone 4 & 4s, can manage to produce and sell at the rate they are currently. Verizons numbers indicate the iPhone sales being almost identical to Android sales. As we know, Android has hundreds of phones for sale on the market; a match in sales just shows how unpopular each Android phone is. Think about it, on average two of each type of Android phone could be sold while everyone will purchase a single iPhone.
“Our global checks also indicated another quarter of strong market share gains for Samsung, particularly in Europe and Asia,” says Walkley. “In fact, we believe Samsung’s strong smartphone portfolio across all price tiers will result in Samsung’s smartphone shipments increasing a remarkable 15%-plus sequentially during the seasonally weak March quarter.”
But Apple can’t get to carried away with their success. Samsung has some widely anticipated phones releases coming up in the near future, and the Android OS may be seeing some major positive re-hauls during this upcoming year. Apples next iPhone has to change in appearance and have a few major upgrades within the phones hardware.
But as we know it, Apple has never been the type of company to feature many huge major changes. Each device they’ve released include one or two major changes, for example a processor upgrade and resolution upgrade. If we estimated a form factor change,processor upgrade,enhanced quad core graphics,iOS 6, and more, we would be wrong.
Do you think Samsung will ever pass Apple up in sales ?
