    According to analyst Anil Doradia, Motorola's Droid RAZR Maxx is outselling the Apple iPhone at Verizon during the quarter ending this month. According to the analyst, this is the first quarter since the launch of the OG Apple iPhone, that the device was not the top selling model at any North American carrier where it was offered. Doradia says:

    Doradia says that this is not the result of potential Apple iPhone buyers at Verizon holding off for the next model of the iconic device. So there you have it, the champion has been knocked out of the number one spot...........for now.

    Not surprising ;-) Verizon has no reason to push iPhones like certain other carriers that's sole existence can be linked to the iPhone :)

    yeah they have been pushing LTE devices pretty hard. I'm sure this will all change once the new iphone is released (assuming it has LTE), then VZW will be pushing you to go iphone and nothing else.

    It will be very interesting to see how Verizon handle the new iPhone. From what I hear androids make Verizon more money however iPhones don't come back to the store every two months for repair lol.

    Exaggeration I know but you get the point :)

    I didn't dislike my iPhone 3G back in the day, but if you put an iPhone 4S up against the RAZR MAXX there's no contest for me. You just can't beat the battery life on the RAZR MAXX.

    This is a big plus for android though :)

    If Motorola would release the RAZR on other carriers it would be unstoppable.

    The Razr HD will still likely stomp a new iPhone with LTE. I doubt Apple will be willing to add that much weight and size to include a massive battery, and from what I've seen phones with the S4 processor seem to be doing better on battery life than previous devices.

    Here's to hoping :) but the new iphone 5 has a few tricks up its sleeve from what I hear. Liquid metal back, a bigger display, lte, and some other stuff that IOS fans might like... for what its worth, liquid metal is a polymer glass composite... not too exciting. But it may be to them :shrug:

    I would like nothing more than to see the HD stomp the new IOS device. :)

    Its all in the size of the battery....who said size doesnt matter.....

    Seriously....one can actually use LTE and not have to worry about being near a charger 3 hours later. Must be liberating. Yea extended batteries can do the same thing. Its just nice to have a battery that size come with the phone.

    Apple already said it won't be using liquid metal in any product for quite a while. Bigger screen...Maybe, but I doubt it will be that much bigger. LTE...I doubt it. That will be too much of a good thing to come from Apple. Expect LTE when AT&T has enough LTE coverage to make it worth it. Camera...maybe better, but i doubt 12 or 13 megapixels. Software will be its only good feature repository and even then...I'm not banking on anything good except maybe their own Maps app which will still be worse than Google Maps.

    I'm super pumped to see the iPhone 6, I was worried the screen was just a stretched ip4.....but I have hope lol.

    Don't jump on the larger screen on the new iPhone. Apple wouldn't want to lose that retina display of theirs

    They put LTE in the iPad regardless of AT&T's LTE network coverage. I know the cellular iPad isn't as widely used as the iPhone, but I'd be extremely surprised if LTE isn't in this year's iPhone. It would be a huge misstep on Apple's part given how much carriers in the U.S. are pushing LTE and the growing public awareness of it. Part of the speculation in the potential increase in screen size comes not only from the shift in the market to larger screen sizes, but also needing a larger body in order to facilitate a large enough battery for LTE. Of course, we'll all just have to wait and see what ends up happening.

    I'm not surprised about the MAXX outselling the iPhone. I think it's for a combination of a few different reasons - Verizon's LTE push, the battery in the MAXX, and the fact that the iPhone 4S isn't the newest kid on the block.

    Not surprised that a 3300mAH phone with a huge screen and LTE is outselling the old 4S, especially with the reps pushing it.

    As to LTE on the new iPhone, why would Apple do that when they can release it without it now then add it in six months later and sell twice the number of phones?

    I 100% agree with this. The next I phone will have LTE. No ands, ifs or butts about it. They wouldn't be competitive if they didn't. There S models are the lazy models to stay competitive. They have to release a model every year. The IPhone 5 will most likely be a big deal.
    I'll probably get one if its a big enough deal and has some cool stuffs. The games are much better on I phone also.
