AT&T Announces Record Holiday Quarter, Smartphone Sales For Q4, 2012


U.S wireless carrier AT&T has announced this afternoon that the fourth quarter of 2012 was its most-successful yet. The company says it sold more than 10 Million smartphones during the quarter, which ultimately topped its previous record of 9.4 Million smartphone units sold, which it achieved during the year-ago quarter.

“We had another incredible quarter of smartphone sales as the mobile internet continues to drive strong growth in wireless,” said Ralph de la Vega, President and Chief Executive Officer for AT&T Mobility.

“These are the industry’s most valuable postpaid subscribers with average revenues twice that of non-smartphone subscribers. During the quarter, we averaged more than 110,000 smartphone sales a day as customers flocked to our leading portfolio of the latest Android, Apple and Windows devices. Combine that with the nation’s largest 4G network and lightning-fast LTE network that now reaches more than 170 Million people and you’ll understand why customers continue to choose AT&T in record numbers.”

Presumably included in those figures, the company added that the quarter saw the “best-ever quarterly sales” of both Android and Apple smartphones. AT&T is currently scheduled to release its full Q4, 2012 financial results after the market closes on Thursday, January 24.
