Survey: AT&T remains Apple iPhone country while Android rules at Verizon
Verizon continues to be known for its Android selection as roughly half of all smartphone activations for the carrier between June and August were for Android models. Like AT&T and the iPhone, Verizon's link to the green robot goes back a few years. In October 2009, Big Red launched Android 2.0 with the Motorola DROID, and Androidmania began. Despite the availability of the Apple iPhone on Verizon, when it comes to operating systems,'Big Green' still rules for Big Red.
During the June through August period, at the four major U.S. carriers, Android accounted for 48% of all activations while iOS was next with 29%. Amazingly, Featurephones were next with a 17% share of activations during the June-August time period. That means that these basic phones had more than triple the activations of BlackBerry (4%) and Windows Phone (1%) combined!
The carrier that relies the most on one platform was T-Mobile. Because the Apple iPhone is not available there, Android commands a huge percentage of all activations for the nations fourth largest carrier.
