Apple iPhone 4 Still the Darling of the US Market; Carriers Make Cupertino Smile

July 25, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

A few hours ago we had told you about the smartphone scene being taken over by Sammy’s Galaxy babies. The numbers we spoke about had made it clear that Samsung’s smartphones had an edge over the iPhones during the second quarter. Look what we have stumbled upon now! From what we get to garner, it looks like the iPhone 4 is still the darling of the US market place. Confused? Read on.

Folks at AllThingsD have provided us with some cool statistics, which we would love to share with you. From the numbers we see, the market is still holding the Apple devices with so much love. Going by the company reports put out by the US carriers, the iPhone love of the markets is a true phenomenon.

Look what AT&T has up their scorecard. The reporting earnings for the June quarter at AT&T state that the carrier had sold 3.6 million iPhones. A huge leap indeed compared to the numbers for the second quarter of last year.

Meanwhile, rival Verizon sold 2.3 million iPhones during Q2 this year. That puts the total number of Apple iPhones that changed hands during the quarter at 11.7 million iPhones for the first half of 2011. Now, that’s just 3.5 million short of the number of iPhones that AT&T offered for the whole of 2010.

Take a look at the graphic posted above to have a hang of how well the iPhones have been luring the market. Kudos to your sales strategy Cupertino! We are now waiting to hear what Sammy has to say.
