Despite reports of Apple selling less iPhones than Samsung in Q2 2011 it looks like the iPhone is still one hot-selling device. According to the latest reporting earnings for its June quarter, AT&T said that it sold 3.6 million iPhones – that’s more than the amount it sold during the Q2 2010. In Q2 2011 for Verizon, the carrier reported that it sold 2.3 million iPhones. Together the two carriers managed to sell 11.7 million iPhones for the first half of 2011 – and that’s 3.5 million short of AT&T’s iPhone sales for 2010.
For a phone that’s now over a year old (which is a long time when it comes to technology), it is selling very well. Even the iPhone 3GS is still making decent sales at AT&T and that phone is two years old. With the next iPhone rumored to be arriving this fall, you can expect sales for the phone to continue growing in this fashion. It makes one wonder – how does the iPhone sell so well? Other phone manufacturers could pick up a tip or two from the Cupertino company when it comes to pushing handsets.
