iPhone 4, in spite of seeming pressure, is the top-selling smartphone at AT&T and Verizon by a broad margin, Canaccord Genuity said in a new research note. Checks demonstrated that the Apple phone was still “by far” the most admired in May and June, even after the arriving of phones like Samsung Infuse 4G and Sony Ericsson Xperia Play on shelve.
The iPhone 3GS has also kept its place above Android at AT&T because of its price. Furthermore, Apple also had the definite lead in tablets. The iPad 2 had an extensive lead at AT&T and Verizon where the BlackBerry PlayBook was “weak,” and neither Motorola nor other tablet manufacturers had more than meek sales.
RIM has once again faced the most damage. The BlackBerry phone line saw “ample” losses in share at all four major US carriers and was out of the top three in each case. Phones resembling the BlackBerry Bold 9900 weren’t due to appear until late in July or in August and would mostly draw upgrades in the corporate world, not regular smartphone buyers.
