has fallen short of Apple and Verizon’s expectations based on information from five Apple stores during the first five day’s of Verizon iPhone ’s availability.
BGR has revealed total unit sales totals from five Apple stores, which includes two prominent Apple stores.
we have been told that online pre-orders between Verizon and Apple amounted to around 550,000 units. 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.
has been available for more than six months now, many expected that Verizon iPhone to easily outsell AT&T iPhone . But as you can see from the sales figures above in some cases Verizon iPhone has barely outsold the GSM iPhone .
, there are few reasons for the lower then expected performance of Verizon iPhone :
We believe that the high ETF could be a major reason for lower than expected sales of Verizon iPhone . It remains to be see if Verizon plans to up the game by offering AT&T’s iPhone customers more incentives, which convinces them to switch.
If you’re an AT&T iPhone customer then we would love to find out what was the reason for sticking with AT&T. Do you plan to switch after your contract with AT&T is over? Let us know in the comments section below.
