Analyst: AT&T sold about 8.2 million Apple iPhones in the December quarter

“AT&T announced that it sold over 10 million smartphones in the December quarter,” Chuck Jones writes for Forbes.

“I estimate that it sold approximately 8.2 million iPhones which would be an increase of 8% year over year,” Jones writes. “This data point supports my estimate of 50.5 million iPhones sold in the quarter as it lowers the numbers needed for other carriers to sell by 700,000 or it could indicate that Apple sold more than I am projecting.”

Jones writes, “I am estimating that Apple generated $57 billion in revenue with 38.8% gross margins and $14.30 in EPS, which is above Street expectations for revenue of $54.6 billion and EPS of $13.34.”

  1. Please, some one please tell those reports that Eric T Mole said that Android was wining the smartphone race.
    AT&T must really review their reports since Eric Wacamole said Android already won.

    1. Yes, Android outsells iPhones everywhere the iPhone is in short supply or unavailable. However, when they go head to head, the Android is Apple RoadKill! So, if you use a global total sales and not say total units sold in the USA, you can make it look like Android is winning the total units. RIMM Blackberry was like that too at one time.
