On Tuesday AT&T announced their financial results for Q1 of 2012. They said that they activated 4.3 million iPhones this quarter. According to reports, that’s far below last quarter’s 7.6 million. Of course it’s expected as that was when the iPhone 4S launched, so there will be a significant spike in iPhone sales for that period.
Here is part of AT&T’s announcement:
Both Android and iPhone device sales remain strong. iPhone sales were helped by AT&T’s 4G network, which lets iPhone 4S download three-times faster than other U.S. carriers’ networks. In the quarter, the company activated 4.3 million iPhones, with 21 percent new to AT&T.
Also pointed out by AT&T’s financial statement (via MacRumors) is that smartphones are making up larger portions of cellphone sales, 78 percent of cellular phones being sold by AT&T are smartphones. With that, the iPhone is seeing proportional growth, making up 60 percent of smartphone sales.
Apple is also going to be revealing their results later today, and we will be back to report on those. So stick around.
