Report: Verizon iPhone 4 Was February’s Most Popular Phone
The report dubs the Verizon iPhone “the most acquired handset in the month of February” and comes a day after BTIG Research analyst Walter Piecyk released a report indicating that the Android-based HTC ThunderBolt was outselling the iPhone 4 at Verizon stores.
In addition, the report also states that Google’s Android grew 7% and is now makes up 33% of the marketshare. RIM came in second with 28.9% market share while Apple and Microsoft checked in with 25.2% and 7.7% respectively.
This represents a negative 1.3 point change for Microsoft, surprising considering the company’s recent launch of Windows Phone 7.
Verizon’s iPhone 4 has been on sale since February 10th with Verizon’s Daniel Mead calling it the most successful launch in the history of the company.
