Initial Verizon iPhone Sales Simply Weren't All That Great

Initial Verizon iPhone Sales Simply Weren't All That Great

February 16, 2011
According to some recent data an Apple source shared with Boy Genius Report, the Verizon iPhone's launch sales did not meet expectations. You couldn't be blamed for being a little surprised upon hearing this news. After all, pre-orders for the Verizon iPhone were reportedly "record breaking," leading many of us to expect pretty impressive sales once the CDMA iPhone went on general release. However, the data BGR's Apple source has shared begs to differ. Below, you can see the number of Verizon iPhones and AT&T iPhones sold in five Apple Stores, between February 10 and 14 - the first five days of the Verizon iPhone's availability.
  • 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
Here are some more statistics: According to the source, pre-orders for the handset between Verizon and Apple amounted to around 550,000 handsets. Furthermore, just 14 percent of Verizon iPhone customers were previous AT&T iPhone customers. Did you grab a Verizon iPhone last week? Let us know in the comments.
