Verizon’s iPhone has been on the market for only a month, but it’s already got 10% of the market share.
PC World (US), 3/16/11
The Verizon iPhone has been on the U.S. market for a little over a month — one month and six days, to be exact — but it has already snapped up 10 percent of the U.S. iPhone market share. This shouldn’t be too surprising, considering Verizon reportedly sold a million iPhones during the opening weekend.
This news comes from Chitika Insights, the research arm of online advertising network Chitika, and is based on its AT&T vs. Verizon live tracker. The mobile ad firm set up the tracker, which tracks the relative percentages of AT&T iPhones and Verizon iPhones that show up on the company’s network.
At the time of the tracker’s launch — just a day after Verizon started selling iPhones — the tracker showed Verizon iPhones at 3 percent (Chitika’s Dan Ruby very vaguely estimated about 900,000 Verizon iPhones based on this percentage).
