• BGR Says Verizon iPhone Sales May Be Disappointing

    Ahead of the Verizon iPhone launch earlier this month, hype surrounding the arrival of the smartphone on a new carrier in the US was so overwhelming that it's understandable to think that actual sales of the Verizon iPhone may fall short of the initial sales expectations. According to a new report published Wednesday, Verizon iPhone sales - while staggering - may be slightly less staggering than originally anticipated.

    Today, the Boy Genius Report dished "exclusively" that a source close to Apple admitted that first-week Verizon iPhone sales have performed "a little under what Apple and Verizon anticipated." And BGR asserts it has the data to corroborate those claims. The assessment is based on sales totals gleaned from five Apple stores, two of which are supposedly "very, very prominent." What we are given is a side-by-side comparison of Verizon and AT&T iPhone 4 sales for the first five days of the Verizon iPhone's market availability.

    • Thursday: Verizon = 909, AT&T = 539
    • Friday: Verizon = 916, AT&T = 680
    • Saturday: Verizon = 660, AT&T = 471
    • Sunday: Verizon = 796, AT&T = 701
    • Monday: Verizon = 711, AT&T = 618
    While the numbers are far from definitive, they do jive with what many Apple fans reported seeing at Verizon and Apple stores where the Verizon iPhone was made available. That is, underwhelming lines were spotted across the US, a reality that suggests Verizon iPhone-fever may not be as instantly contagious as once thought. BGR, however, also reports that an estimated 550,000 Verizon iPhones were sold online during the first preorder day (February 3rd) alone.
