AllThingsD reports on a study by BTIG Research which shows that customers at Verizon and AT&T are pretty skewed toward , even over Android (Blackberry and WP7 are rounding errors). In fact, if the two biggest carriers in the US are so skewed toward toward , how is Android outselling iPhone?
250 Verizon and AT&T stores surveyed on what was their best selling smartphone, and according to BTIG Research, the number one answer on their board was…! It sat at the top of the charts at 89% of Verizon stores (tied with Droid Charge or Thunderbolt at 38% of those), and 65% of AT&T stores.
And while it only launched in February on Verizon,has been out on AT&T for over a year, and the base hardware is a year old. That’s it’s not only still competitive, but still winning at the carrier outlets is interesting. (Not surprisingly, it’s the top selling — and only selling — smartphone at Stores as well, which just goes to show how large their dominant retail position really is.)
Anyone surprised by this?
