Smartphone users choose AT&T?May 15th, 2009 at 11:49 am by admin under Technology
I just got an email from Kate MacKinnon at AT&T. Seems that they attracted more than twice as many smartphone users as their nearest competitor. This was, of course due to the huge popularity of the iPhone. The U.S. had 5.3 million iPhone users in March!
“Since there is hard iPhone data here, it will likely make some noise today. Today’s AT&T press release and a Bloomberg article below for your reference.
Announced today, twice as many smartphone users have chosen AT&T over any other U.S. carrier. As of March, according to an independent report, the iPhone made up 41 percent of AT&T’s 11.8 million smart-phone subscriptions. And, among smartphones users, 46.9 percent belonged to AT&T – Verizon coming in at a distant second with 20 percent of the smartphone market. As you know, data revenue/growth – not voice calling – is the future of the wireless business, so this finding is significant.
