Verizon sold 9.8 million smartphones in Q4 2012, including higher mix of iPhones

AT&T teased their Q4 2012 smartphone activation numbers yesterday, and now, in an 8-K SEC filing, Verizon has done the same, reporting 9.8 million activations, including a higher mix of iPhones.

We should get more precise numbers when Verizon releases their full results. Last year, Verizon reported 4.2 million iPhone activation, accounting for roughly 55% of all their smartphone activations. With the iPhone 5 launch during the quarter, and the higher mix of iPhones Verizon is reporting, the obvious question becomes -- how much higher was the iPhone mix this quarter?
