re: For Verizon, iPhone Outsells All LTE Android Smartphones
It's also unfair to compare 4G phone sales to iPhone or any other 3G phone sales due to the availability of accessible 4G coverage in existing markets. Nearly everyone has 3G coverage at this point, so there's no considerable discouraging factor to buying a 3G iPhone. However, many areas are still lacking decent 4G coverage, or any 4G coverage at all. Unless a person is in an area currently covered by 4G or slated to upgrade soon, there's no reason to spring for the 4G phone.
I'd be more interested in seeing the comparison of people who purchased 4G phones who live and/or work in an area of 4G coverage compared to iPhone sales of the same demographic. That might be a little more telling of which phone is preferred.
