iPHONE SALES AT VERIZON: Up 26% Over Last Year, Accounted For 51% Of All Smartphone Activations

On the call, it looks like Verizon may have suggested it would have activated more iPhones, but there were inventory constraints.

Apple reports its earnings in two weeks, so we’ll get the full picture then.
