Verizon's iPhone 4 Sales Still Strong, Says Study

Print comment Post Comments
In its first week of release, the Verizon iPhone 4 gobbled up 3% of the total US iPhone market. Over the course of just a few days, Verizon managed to claim that amount against four years of various AT&T models. Not too shabby.

Well, it's five months later, and Verizon's share continues to grow. In April, the company announced it had sold 2.2 million iPhones in the first quarter. And now, according to a recent study by mobile analytics company Localytics, roughly one-third of all iPhone 4 models in the US are on Verizon.

Disputing sluggish estimates by Goldman Sachs analyst Jason Armstrong, Localytics says the device has held a steady climb since its launch week -- where Verizon commanded nearly 20% of all iPhone 4s. But in the last two months, its share jumped over 6%.

Lacalytics explains its methodology, "Each month's market share number is based on the seven-day period leading up to the 1st of the month -– therefore, numbers should be taken as market share on the first day of the stated month. Data is based on app usage as seen by Localytics."

But given that Verizon just removed its unlimited data plans for new customers, let's see how it does against AT&T now that they're on equal footing.

And then again, there's Android to worry about.
