Almost seems fruitless for any other OEM to intro a phone for AT&T, let alone have an exclusivity with AT&T. Just imagine if the 920 were available on all carriers. I think Nokia and WP8 would be doing much better.

I love Nokia but your assumption is just more like a wishful thinking.
I guess S3 is selling well too.

Maybe. And after thinking about it more, this is Q4 we're talking about. There's always going to be a spike in ios after launches and during the Christmas season.

um.. No. People in the US tried android and rejected it. It's as simple as that

I agree. If AT&T is going to be an iPhone network, other OEMs shouldn't even try. My 920 is awesome but I feel like ATT only carried it to prevent Verizon from lifting it off the ground, not to show others they diversify. Just walk into a carrier store. They are all packing iPhones and only wish to sell iPhones.

Not around my place.. They are all wearing windows shirts and the manager had a Optimus G and a l920. They were all pushing WP8.. I'm sure not all are like that but with this location they do

If we assume 500K were WP and/or BB devices it leaves 1.1m for android. lol...
That stupid smile on larry paige's face would be falling off right about now, especially if this trend away from android spreads to overseas markets. .

At my local AT&T store the Reps are mixed I talk to one guy there that knows his stuff and he is all about Android phones knows a lot about Android and hates Apple cause he doesn't get good spiffs/money from them like Android OEMs. Then there are other reps that show people their Iphones and how to use them I don't really talk to them. I never saw any reps there with a Windows 7 phone though. I remember a few years ago the reps only used 2 phones some had Iphones and others had Black Berrys .
