Failing Up

Verizon just reported its Q4 numbers, and they’re astonishing:

It sold 7.3 million LTE devices the last three months of 2012, and it activated 9.8 million smartphones in total. It activated 6.2 million iPhones, about half of which were the LTE-enabled iPhone 5.


iPhone represented two-thirds of Verizon’s smartphone sales, even though the company is known for having its reps push customers — hard — towards Android devices. That’s up almost ten points from Verizon’s 2011 holiday quarter. Meanwhile, iPhone now represents over 51% of US smartphone sales.

Expect Tim Cook to announce yet another blowout quarter tomorrow, while the tech pundits continue to fret over Apple’s dim future.
