Verizon pulls in subscribers with iPhone; new CEO
Verizon Communications Inc. is seeing a big boost from the iPhone, adding more new subscribers on contracts in the second quarter than it has in two and half years.
Yet AT&T Inc., which was been the exclusive seller of Apple Inc.’s iconic phone in the U.S. until February, still activates three iPhones for every two Verizon does.
It’s pretty impressive that Verizon is activating that many iPhones, given the rampant speculation about when the next model will be released and whether it will bring feature parity to their CDMA-based iPhone. As the article mentions, I expect that these numbers will change dramatically when the next-generation iPhone is finally released.
