The Fight to Unseat Apple’s iPhone Intensifies?

February 6th, 2013 § 0 comments

Verizon reported Tuesday that more than half of the iPhones the company sold in the fourth quarter were older models that sell at deep discounts. Dane Scism, a Verizon dealer with nearly 600 stores around the country, said many of his customers settled for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, because they didn’t see a value in paying up for the iPhone 5’s faster cellular connection—one of the new device’s marquee features.

I can see how it’s bad for Apple that people buy the “free” iPhone 4 over the $200 iPhone 5. Even though the margin is the same the total profit is less. I fail to see, however, how the fact that people are choosing the two-year old iPhone over the latest Android phones is good for Apple’s competitors.
