Ha!!! The Droid Razr Maxx is outselling the Iphone on Verizon

by Jayshmay    Jun 12, 2012, 1:24 AM

All that pent up demand that all of us thought there was for the IPhone on Verizon, and the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is outselling the IPhone on Verizon,. . .ha!!!!!!

I guess Motorola isn’t doing so bad after all.
Apparently, the company’s Droid Razr Maxx was
the top-selling device on the largest wireless
provider in the United States, Verizon, topping
the wildly popular iPhone. The best-selling
phone in the US is under some pressure,
according to analyst Anil Doradia.
Doradia writes, “our checks highlight initial signs
of Apple’s momentum under pressure,
particularly at Verizon, which we believe is from
the operator aggressively marketing competing
4G devices,” referring to the volume of sales for
the phone as of the June quarter, based on his
The analyst continued with these thoughts down
Since Apple’s iPhone launch in North
America, we believe this was the first
quarter where the iPhone was not the best
selling smartphone at a North American
mobile operator (where it was available).
While Apple continued to maintain its top
position at AT&T and Sprint, Motorola’s
Droid RAZR MAXX was the best selling
smartphone at Verizon. Our checks also
indicate that at this stage consumers are
not pausing in front of the iPhone launch
as it is not influencing their purchasing
decisions (but we expect it to start
impacting over the next couple of
months). Despite the “increased
competitive landscape from 4G devices
(and the iPhone 4S is not 4G),” Doradia is
“not worried” as the next iPhone model, a
true 4G phone, “will be an important
catalyst for the company,” he believes.
This shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise, as Big
Red tries to feverishly push phones that offer its
LTE service down people’s throats. I know
someone who’s grandfathered-in to Unlimited
data, and was offered the Droid Razr Maxx in
order to handle the heavy data this person uses.
Of course, this takes much pressure off of VZ’s
3G network — the person I know consumes
over 20 GB’s of data monthly. Yes, you heard
right. oid-razr-maxx-outsells-iphone-verizon/?manere Den%26sky%3Dee%26q%3DIntomobile%2BDroid%2BRaz ar%2BVerizon%26btnG%3DSearch
