Ahead of the Verizon iPhone launch earlier this month, hype surrounding the arrival of the smartphone on a new carrier in the US was so overwhelming that it's understandable to think that actual sales of the Verizon iPhone may fall short of the initial sales expectations. According to a new report published Wednesday, Verizon iPhone sales - while staggering - may be slightly less staggering than originally anticipated.
Today, the Boy Genius Report dished "exclusively" that a source close to Apple admitted that first-week Verizon iPhone sales have performed "a little under what Apple and Verizon anticipated." And BGR asserts it has the data to corroborate those claims. The assessment is based on sales totals gleaned from five Apple stores, two of which are supposedly "very, very prominent." What we are given is a side-by-side comparison of Verizon and AT&T iPhone 4 sales for the first five days of the Verizon iPhone's market 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
