Android Winning?

No. At least not at Verizon.

Tom Krazit, paidContent:

In the first quarter that Verizon Wireless was on board with Apple for an iPhone launch event, the company sold 4.2 million iPhones, accounting for more than half of the 7.7 million smartphones that its customers purchased in the fourth quarter.

The combined sales of the numerous Android devices offered by Verizon did not outsell the iPhone. I’ve always hated the iPhone versus Android tagline. The iPhone represents a device while Android is an operating system on dozens and dozens of devices. A fairer comparison would be iOS versus Android. Even using that metric, Matt Richman provides evidence that Apple outsold all Android vendors combined last quarter. Interesting results if you remember that iOS exists across only three product lines.
