BGR posted sales totals from five Apple brick-and-mortar stores including two "very, very prominent" ones, following the first five days of the smartphone's launch on the carrier.
While there was huge hype for the launch, there were no lines (or small ones) outside of Apple stores on launch day, a stark difference from the phone's launch on AT&T, where eager buyers waited overnight on the street to get the device on the first day.
The full data (sales for Verizon, sales for AT&T, same store):
Thursday: Verizon = 909, AT&T = 539
Friday: Verizon = 916, AT&T = 680
Saturday: Verizon = 660, AT&T = 471
Sunday: Verizon = 796, AT&T = 701
Monday: Verizon = 711, AT&T = 618
Pre-orders of the smartphone were large, however, coming to 550,000 units.
Finally, the site says 30 percent of Verizon iPhone buyers came from Android, 25 percent from BlackBerry and 14 percent from the AT&T iPhone.
