New Android products being outsold by Apple iPhone 3GS and the original iPad

New Android products being outsold by Apple iPhone 3GS and the original iPad
A report from tech analyst Michael Walkley from Canaccord Genuity claims that at AT&T and Verizon, older versions of Apple's mobile devices are outselling some current Android models. In a note to clients this morning, the analyst wrote, "Interestingly, our April checks indicated continued strong demand for the iPhone 3GS at AT&T and iPad 1 at Verizon, as these older generation products with reduced prices often outsold new Android products. We believe this highlights Apple's significant competitive advantage, and these older products help Apple offer a tiered pricing strategy at key channels."

Walkley discovered that at AT&T stores, the $49 Apple iPhone 3GS was outselling Android powered devices like the HTC Inspire 4G and the Motorola ATRIX 4G. At Verizon, the 16GB and 32GB versions of the original Apple iPad sold out two weeks after the sequel model was launched. The analyst also discovered that Android is taking market share away from Windows Phone 7 handsets, but is not yet invading the iPhone space. He also notes that while Android as a whole has outsold the iPhone because of the large amount of different phones using Google's open source OS, there has been no other single smartphone that has outsold Apple's device.

Despite reports that the HTC ThunderBolt is outselling the Apple iPhone 4 at Verizon, Walkley says that it is the latter that is the top seller for Big Red. He expects that to continue throughout the year as customers existing 2 year contracts expire, allowing them to purchase Apple's phone with a subsidy.

The analyst also wrote that the Apple iPad is the best selling tablet while competing devices like the Motorola XOOM and the BlackBerry PlayBook have had "modest sales".

I lol'd at how PA delivers the statement that no other smartphone was able to outsell iPhone. Well that is natural because there are a lot of choices if you want to own an android device. I bet if there is only one android phone in the market, it will outsell iPhone, but google chose not to monopolize its OS. It offers consumers diversity and flexibility, plus openness in a whole. iPhonearena is on a roll baby.

An "analyst" did the "research" which a f\/cking moron is trying to pump Apple's stock so he can dump them onto the market. Notice lately, all these "analysts" doing "research"?? It's called a Pump & Dump play and the SEC should be f\/cking investigating these anal-cysts! I remember reading an anal-cyst's research on Google back before it IPO'ed, he said, "All Google does is search advertising, there's no way people are going to pay $89.50 a share for a company like that." Well, since Google had an open IPO, they were just scaring people away so they could buy more shares for themselves. The best rule of thumb for these analsh!its is to do the opposite of what they're telling you, if they say buy, then sell...if they say sell, then buy! Have a look at MGM as a most recent example, those analsh!ts downgraded it right before the most recent earnings, so it dropped about $2-3/share, then they scooped up all the shares and MGM popped after earnings. Those f\/cktards!

People must be stupid why would they want the old Iphone 3Gs when it have MORE DROP CALLS THAN ANY OTHER PHONE OUT THEIR. I'm just glad I upgraded to the Atrix 4G. Cause it's faster better screen more memory and external memory. It only sold more cause it's 49$ so why is this thing news?

Sorry, but a customer in the market for a $49 phone doesn't care about phone specs at all. That's like saying the LG Accolade is outselling the Casio Ravine. Of course it is, it's a free phone and caters to a whole different segment of phone shoppers (cheap asses). Those willing to pay for a high end device aren't getting 3Gs.

Very True...

TO (someguy and every applefanboy) your just not getting it are you. it is not pretty incredible that one phone is holding a quarter of the market. If apple was smart they would design more then one model and they would sell more. Only one phone has apple OS which is what everyone is trying to tell people like you. So when you say it correctly that apple OS has one quarter of the market in reality that is pretty lame. Android OS has over 50 percent of the market with the other 15 percent being (dumb Phones). In moron terms I myself work for a cell store which sells Att-VZW and T-mobile. I sell Iphone and every make android. We avg 50 new phones a month and about a hundred upgrades a month. No lie if ten of them is a Iphone then I sold a lot of iphones that month. Atleast a hundred are android brand. If you want to compare it to cars like some have. compare it to Mustangs against Camaro-Firebirds of the 80s am\nd 90s. A lot of people will hate me for saying this but people used to say the mustang was the best muscle car between those years. The mustang in reality was garbage. To tiny and the smallest V8 possible and no horsepower. Not even going to bring it that iut was made by Ford. If you looked at numbers yes the Mustang outsold the fire bird or the camaro in a one on one contest. But add the camaro and firebird which where identicle cars with very minor tweaks and diferent company names then there sales together crushed the mustangs. To me that is exactly whats going on with phones today. just like the cars the camaro-firebird had the bigger more advanced everything but came in two diferent models. Now i know the mustangs fanatics who read this will hate me and argue everything under the sun to make there car better again just like apple junkies do with there phone lol.

Wowe. I think you need to take this someplace else. The "White boy" comment was way out of line and before you go there...yes I am African American, educated, worked in the real world, voted for Obama and sometimes hates some of the things he does but will vote for him again. So I'm pretty much someone you have already determined to hate. But we are just talking about phones here. Can we get back to that please?

Wowe is just stating what most Americans are thinking these days

No, he's being a jerk. At least if you are going to be a jerk, back it up with facts. But when you just make up crap that everyone knows is not true, your just being a jerk.

I usually just read..but wowe1234 you are a coward. A communist arian nation racist punk . And im white and a republican

41. Wowe1234 unregistered

I had no idea that a Black man could be a racist and communist. Wait I'm a Black capitalist and Obama is a racist communist but then again... You probably are under educated or are over educated and never work in the real world while having to pay taxes.... Go back to mommy and daddy White boy and vote for another man because he is black too... It might be me... I'm a Conservative Democrat....

obamaalltheway... Obama is a coward too... Let's just say sorry to all the American haters... You need a back bone to run this country and that's why it's economy is going down fast because he doesn't have one... If I'm such a communist then why do I believe in private business and tax reduction and Obama believes in enlarging the government by having them do the hiring... You must be trying to get one of those new IRS jobs. LOL... His policies are holding black people back by telling black people that they don't have to work as hard as their white counter parts because of the color of their skim to get into college, employment(EEOC) and etc... Now that's the ugly truth....

The Republican Governor in 2004 really messed things up in MA with Romney Care... There taxes are skyrocketing... There is no forgiveness from idiots like Obama and Romney. The only thing I respect about Romney is he sits in coast on airplanes while Obama gets his feet massaged on Air Force One on my dollar....
