iPhone accounts for more than 50% of Verizon Phone Sales in Q1 2012

The market is eagerly awaiting next Tuesday's (April 24th) release of Apple's Q2 financials. Apple is now a big factor on NASDAQ and Apple's numbers are seen as a major indicator for the whole tech sector. Right now most analysts expect Apple to report lower numbers compared to the record setting previous quarter. Today the first real indicator of iPhone sales has emerged.

Verizon Wireless revealed in their earnings call today that they sold 3.2 million iPhones in the last quarter. This is down 1.1 million compared to the previous quarter that contained the iPhone 4S launch. The impressive thing though, is that this number means that more than half of all phones sold by Verizon are iPhones. Verizon sold over 6.3 million phones last quarter.

Overall it is expected that Apple sold about 37 million iPhones globally last quarter, slightly lower than in Apple's record setting Q1.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
