iPhone drops from top spot among Verizon smartphone sales

06/26, 1:34pm

The iPhone is no longer Verizon's bestselling smartphone, according to a note from William Blair analyst Anil Doradla. The claim is based on channel checks for the June quarter, and marks the first time the iPhone has slipped out of the lead since the carrier started carrying the product in February last year. Although sales could potentially be suffering in the wait for a next-generation iPhone, Doradla suggests that the root cause is Verizon putting the brunt of its marketing into 4G-capable smartphones, namely the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX.

Some Moto phones not able to access Google Play

Google's recent renaming of the Android Market to Google Play is said to be causing some headaches for some Motorola smartphone owners. It rendered the app drawer market link unusable, as Motorola's Blur interface is searching for the old Android Market app. The only way around it so far, until an over-the-air update with a fix is released, is to find Play Store manually in the phone.
