HTC Thunderbolt Challenging iPhone at Verizon

The Android smartphone is a beast of a device not only is it one of the world’s first 4G LTE boasts a 4.3-inch touchscreen, an 8-megapixel camera and 8 GB of flash memory. it retails for $249.99 with a two-year contract, $50 more than the iPhone 4.

Analysts at BTIG Research polled 150 Verizon Wireless stores and asked the sales people whether they sold more iPhones or Thunderbolts during the previous weekend, 61% of stores reported that sales of both devices were nearly identical, while a full 28% said the Thunderbolt was outselling the iPhone. Some 11% of stores, mostly in the Southeast, claimed the iPhone 4 was still outselling HTC’s newest smartphone.



The HTC Thunderbolt is a hit. The combination of large screen and hyper-fast 4G speeds has proven alluring to Verizon’s customers. Don’t think this means the Thunderbolt is actually outselling the Verizon iPhone yet, Apple’s device is also available in Apple Stores and at Best Buy, increasing its total sales figures.

The Thunderbolt and other LTE Android phones like it will have plenty of time to firmly establish themselves in the market.
