The HTC Thunderbolt has been outselling the iPhone 4 at Verizon Wireless locations nationwide, according to the research firm BTIG.
Their research methodology was simple: call 150 Verizon Wireless retail locations in 22 major cities and talk to the sales people to get a sense of how each device has been selling.
Here are the results:
- 61% of respondents said that the two devices were selling equally as well
- 28% said that the Thunderbolt was selling more units
- 11% answered that the iPhone 4 was the subject of more sales
Keep in mind that these are not actual sales figures, but rather based on interactions with the people who have been selling the units. Either way it's great news for Android and HTC as the Thunderbolt appears to be an early success. Android has been outselling the iPhone for a while now due to the fact that there are so many Android handsets to choose from. However, there was never one device that kept up with iPhone sales on its own, until now.
