AT&T has released numbers for its Q1 earnings, and while the number of iPhones sold has dropped, it’s still the networks that dominates with the device. In Q1 AT&T sold 5.5 million smartphones, a new Q1 record, of which 4.3 million were iPhones — that’s 78%. And while Ma Bell sold 7.6 million last quarter with the iPhone 4S, it’s still holding strong over the competition on the iPhone front.
Also interesting is how much of AT&T market share is taken up by smartphones: “At the end of the quarter, 59.3 percent, or 41.2 million, of AT&T’s postpaid subscribers had smartphones, up from 46.2 percent and 31.5 million a year earlier.”
While this may not tell us anything about prepaid, but it does show the continued growth of smartphones.
