Thanks Mechanic. I doubt I'm the only one who was confused by AI's reporting of the numbers. I really didn't have the opportunity to go searching that out for myself and so appreciate you taking the time to do so.
EDIT: I'm still not sure I trust the numbers reporting. If 68% of the 7.2 million smartphones activated were 4G LTE that equals about 4.9 million smartphones. Only 2 million of those were the iPhone 5's leaving nearly three million "other" 4G LTE Verizon smartphone activations. That would mean rather than taking the lion's share of the high end that Apple accounted for nearly every entry level free or inexpensive 3G activated smartphone with their 4 and 4S models (2M out of a total 2.3M 3G models activated).
Did I do the math right??Seems screwy and goes against what I thought we knew about Apple selling most of the more expensive phones while the budget buyers went with Android.
