According to calculations and numbers released by analyst Michael Walkley from Canaccord Genuity, the Apple iPhone 4S is no longer, for the first time after its introduction last year, the best selling smartphone on the U.S. market. While it is still the hottest phone to sell on AT&T’s network, the Samsung Galaxy S III has dethroned the iPhone overall, also leading on carriers like Verizon and Sprint.
Of course the world is expecting the highly anticipated next iPhone to be unveiled on September 12, which could have led to people refraining from purchasing the old model. Also, Samsung is pushing the Galaxy S III hard; it is one of the best Android phones on the market at the moment and it also happens to be seven months younger than the Apple model. Whether Apple will take back the top spot or the Galaxy S III will continue its reign depends pretty much on what the Cupertino company shows off next week.
The analyst definitely predicts a strong comeback for Apple but there were times when numbers and predictions turned out to be wrong. Let us know of what you think will happen after September 12.
