The pre-order sales were hot, but when it came time for Verizon and Apple stores to open their doors on February 10, it seems that there wasn’t all that much demand for the iPhone 4. At least that’s the word from Boy Genius Report, which according to its sources, says that sales are “a little under what Apple and Verizon anticipated.” The site claims to have sales data from the first five days for five Apple stores combined. As you’ll see below, Verizon is outselling AT&T in all of the listed locations, but not always by a huge margin.
What does Verizon Wireless have to say about all this? A company spokesperson wrote us back with the following:
“We are very pleased with the pace of sales.”
Of course, that’s not very specific, but it’s possible we’ll hear more from Big Red over the next few days should this story continue to get picked up. Other interesting tidbits BGR is reporting include stats on who’s buying iPhones, such as 30 percent of Verizon iPhone purchasers switched from Android and over a quarter dropped BlackBerry.
