This comes at no surprise, the Apple iPhone 4S is the best selling smartphone on the 3 top carriers in the US, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S II. Analysts from the Canacord Genuity group came out gunning with this information on Monday, and although everything is as expected, we still find it exciting to know for sure who is on top in the world of smartphones and tablets.
As stated above, the iPhone 4S is number one on all the top three carriers (Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint), only T-Mobile which doesn’t offer the iPhone breaks the trend with the Samsung Galaxy S II. When it comes to tablets, the Apple iPad 2 lacks any form of true competition, and thus easily keeps the number one spot. Things could change next year if the Amazon Kindle fire takes, which to me is doubtful; the only thing that could compete with the iPad in 2012 is Windows 8 on tablets, true? True!
“IPhone 4S sales strength continues as distribution increases – Our November checks indicated iPhone sales remained strong in the US, particularly at AT&T and Sprint. Further, our checks indicated strong global share gains,” Walkley wrote. “With the iPhone 4S launching in new markets including China, Brazil, and Russia during December, we anticipate strong December quarter iPhone sales and have increased our estimate from 29.0 to 30.5M units.”
2012 will be one hell of a year for mobile devices, and because of that we are dying to see what will be available.
