iPhone 3GS Beats Newer Android Phones in April

Apple iPhone 3GS is nearly two years old but according to AppleInsider, still outselling many newer models of Android. Stats from Cannacord Genuity’s  Michael Walkle reveal that both iPhone 3GS and iPad (the original one) are giving competitors a tough time.

Experts analysied AT&T and Verizon’s sales for April and found that iPhone 3GS is still a strong seller for AT&T with $49 price tag that means, its outselling both HTC Inspire and Motorola Atrix.

What these stats show is that Android is surely capturing the smartphone market and taking share of Windows Phone 7 and Blackberry but iPhone still holds a strong position, AppleInsider reported.

Checks with stores found that new Android smartphones were largely gaining share from Windows 7 smartphones, but not the iPhone. Walkley also expects the iPhone to remain the top selling handset at Verizon throughout 2011 as upgrades continue, partially because the carrier is not allowing subsidies to customers that are still under a two-year contract.
