Verizon CFO Fran Shammo hinted at a major smartphone launch in Q4 of this year - IE the iPhone 2012.  That was the highlight most posts started off with from the conference call - but really that is not news just a confirmation of what was expected by almost all.  

 

What was news is this past quarter Verizon sold 2.7 million iPhones - vs 2.9 Million Android smartphones combined.  So yes once again the iPhone was the best selling smartphone on Verizon. That the iPhone and ALL Android phones combined were so close in sales is amazing when you consider Verizon sales staff has been pushing new customers to 4G / LTE Android phones the entire quarter.  

 

According to CNET overall Verizon sold 5.9 Mil smartphones. So that you don't need to go to your calc app - that means RIM sold 300k smartphones at Verizon last quarter - Yikes!! Ouch !!! oh my and simply Wow - but not in a good way wow.  I should note - That looking at the transcript at Seeking Alpha - I could not confirm that 5.9 Mil number.

 

To put the 2.7 Mil iPhones into perspective Verizon sold 2.3 Mil in the year ago quarter - but sold 3.2 Mil in Q1 of 2012.
