Verizon iPhone 4 Impressions 4.5% of U.S. iPhones in Two Weeks

By: Chris Crum - March 18, 2011

Millennial Media released its monthly Mobile Mix report this morning, finding (among other things) that Verizon’s iPhone represented 4.5% of U.S. iPhone Impressions in the two weeks following the launch.

Verizon is about 3 years behind AT&T in terms of offering the iPhone. Verizon said that it had a record first day of sales in the history of the company. “In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer – designed to reward them for their loyalty.”

The device became generally available from Verizon on February 10.

Verizon accounted for 20% of all carrier impressions on Millennial’s network in February. That network reaches 90.3 million monthly users in the U.S. Here are the top manufacturers and devices for the month, according to Millennial Media:

Samsung grew 50% month-over-month to reclaim the number two position on the Top 15 Manufacturers ranking, the firm says.  The Samsung Galaxy Tablet debuted in the top 30 devices. Samsung also had three new Smartphones enter the Top 30 (Fascinate, Forte, and Captivate).

Android led iOS as the largest Smartphone OS on Millennial’s network for the third consecutive month, with a 51% impression share.

A study released this week by Blaze Software finds that the latest Android devices load Web pages 52% faster than the iPhone 4.

    People dislike Apple in general. I love Apple. Yes they are way over priced. But, what they sell, works. And is the best in terms of ease of use and EXTREME quality build. Also Apples products HOLD their value extremely well because of these qualities~!
    Im very surprised that the Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S) is not doing better. It truly is the best device as far as performance goes.
    Also, the general public is so easy to sell to. These device manufacturers are beginning to “pop out” dual core processing devices which is SUCH a waste. Whats the point to a dual core in a hand held?? The biggest app I have on my Iphone 4 is maybe 500 Megs, and its VISUALLY graphically demanding, yet, the A4 1 ghz is WAY more than enough to run it.
    I am really afraid that Apple is following suit though, with rumors that the Iphone 5 will sport dual as well….
    The REAL need here is MEMORY EXPANSION!!! Not processing speed. I would like to see 1Gig of mem instead.
