iPhone 5c Overcome Android, BlackBerry and Windows Handsets In Winter Quarter 2013

Although the iPhone 5c didn’t sell well, it hasn’t been removed from the shelves as badly as thought. AppleInsider’s new report from Daniel Eran Dilger says that the handset sold out Windows Phone, BlackBerry and even the flagship Android in the U.S. during winter quarter.

The report has multiple sources saying iPhone 5c sales were 12.8 million in the 3 month period, more than double the amount of some key competitor sales.
That means iPhone 5c sold twice as many units as all Blackberry smartphone sales combined (6 million), more than all of Nokia’s Windows Phone smartphone sales in the winter quarter (8.2 million), and in fact, all of Microsoft’s Windows Phones sold globally in the winter quarter (slightly more than 8.2 million, as Nokia makes 90 percent of the world’s Windows Phones). Even Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S4 reportedly sold just 9 million units in the winter quarter. If you do the math, that’s less than 12.8 million.
It should also be noted that he iPhone 5s was the second most famous phone on half of the best 4 carriers; Sprint and At&t, in the U.S. Samsung Galaxy S4 got 2nd place on T-Mobile and Verizon in the same period. But the sales figure show that the so called ‘flop’ phone is a worthy candidate in the best-selling list.

 A major reason for the critique is that the phone has been overshadowed in iPhone 5s success. It is hard to believe that Apple is not happy with customers going for the 5s, and Dilger blames Android as a problem.
Note that Apple isn’t just asking for more money; consumers are readily paying twice as much to buy iPhones. That’s indicative of a failure on the part of Android. Either the entire world has been fooled, or Android is simply not as desirable as its proponents claim.
Apple also recently launched iPhone 5c 8 GB version in China, France, Australia, UK and Germany, indicating that the sales have had potential from the start. And now as we know, iPhone 5c was one of Apple’s most successful release last year, and the world’s second most popular smartphone in 2013.
