With all the rumor and mayhem around the upcoming iPhone 5, we almost forgot that the iPhone 4 is still on the market, and doing great.
T. Michael Walkley, an analyst with Canaccord Genuity, found the iPhone 4 leading the pack in smartphone sales despite being more than a year old and about to be eclipsed by a new model within months. It was the leading smartphone seller in June, July and August on AT&T and Verizon. On AT&T, the iPhone 3GS also performed exceedingly well, as the number two seller those months.
Outside the Apple arena, 4G phones dominated the sales figures.
On Sprint, the HTC EVO 3-D 4G dominated in sales, while on T-Mobile, the HTC Sensation was the best seller. On Verizon, the Samsung Charge 4G took second place and the HTC Thunderbolt 4G snagged third.
Walkley also found the iPad 2 (unsurprisingly) was the top-selling tablet on Verizon and AT&T. The first generation iPad also continues to sell well, beating out many newer Android tablets that are available.
