That’s right. Mere months after its initial launch, the Apple iPhone, available exclusively through AT&T, has clawed its way to the top. Accounting for a full 13% of AT&T total handset sales in, the iPhone has secured its position as the nation’s fourth best-selling handset.
MobileTechNews reports that data from Strategy Analytics‘ ProductTRAX program shows that 1.325 million iPhones have shipped since its launch. The iPhone is the “4th top selling handset in the US market,” according to Barry Gilbert, VP of the Strategy Analytics BuyerTRAX programs.
Strategy Analytics’ David Kerr says that:
While the largest percentage of iPhone buyers is between 20-30 years old, the fact that nearly 25 percent were between 50-60 years old demonstrates that the device attracts buyers across a broad age spectrum
Now, we all knew the iPhone was selling well, but the true test will be if Apple can attain the 1% global marketshare goal that it set for itself. But, even if the current iPhone doesn’t meet Apple’s self-imposed goal, the iPhone brand will undoubtedly continue to perform – the next-gen iPhone may carry the torch well into the future. We’ll just have to wait and see.
