Well BGR has some stats that compare iPhone sales on AT&T and Verizon and since the Verizon iPhone is all shiny and new to the market you’d expect some big time numbers from them. Well, it’s not the case. It looks like in store sales are pretty similar comparing one is just daily sales and one is a new product. These are 5 combined stores:
- Thursday: Verizon = 909, AT&T = 539
- Friday: Verizon = 916, AT&T = 680
- Saturday: Verizon = 660, AT&T = 471
- Sunday: Verizon = 796, AT&T = 701
- Monday: Verizon = 711, AT&T = 618
And preorders were just 550,000 which is a large number, but with the iPhone the numbers are always expected to be even higher. They also note:
We also have some statistics on who’s buying Verizon iPhones to share with you: 30% of people buying Verizon iPhones were Android users, just over 25% of people buying iPhone 4 were BlackBerry users, and only 14% of people buying the Verizon iPhone were AT&T iPhone owners. The remaining percent didn’t want to say, didn’t have a smartphone, or didn’t have a phone prior to making their iPhone 4 purchases last week.
Let’s see how things fare come the iPhone 5.
