Verizon activated 9.8 million smartphones, more iPhones in Q4 2012
Interestingly, the carrier also mentioned it has activated a “higher mix of Apple smartphones.” We’d only get the official numbers on January 22nd at the financials release and earnings call.
Activated does not necessarily mean sold, but chances are the sales number is close to that. Last quarter, Verizon outsold AT&T selling 6.8 million smartphones against 6.1 million for AT&T.
Earlier, we already saw some of Verizon’s quarterly data leak, showing it gained 2.1 million post-paid subscribers in Q4 2012, accelerating growth over the previous quarter’s 1.5 million additions.
