Anil Doradla, an analyst for William Blair, says he has found that the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX is currently the top-selling smartphone at Verizon - yes, even ahead of the iPhone 4S. In a recent report, Doradla said:
Android as a collective of many devices has overthrown iOS market share, but it's surprising to see a single smartphone beat out Apple's, especially in the U.S. Of course, it's hard to always take analyst "checks" at face value. AT&T's flagship Android smartphone is the HTC One X, and Sprint's is the HTC EVO 4G LTE - both impressive in their own rights, but it's interesting to hear that even without a bigger screen or LTE, the iPhone still manages to out-sell them. Who knows if iPhone will maintain its lead when the Samsung Galaxy S III hits the streets, but by that time, we won't have a long wait for the iPhone 5.
So, do you guys have any friends that picked up a RAZR MAXX instead of an iPhone 4S? Have you remotely interested in giving that particular Droid a try?
