AT&T Vs Verizon: iPhone Sales Predictions for 2011

Piper Jeffray’s main man has spoken out once again, this time giving his predictions on the now seemingly inevitable iPhone sales battle between AT&T and Verizon, which could kick off as early as next month if all the rumors are to be believed.

According to this report from Apple Insider, Gene Munster has gone on record to say that he thinks that Verizon will only add 2.5 million iPhones to the total number of iPhones sold next year, with most of their subscriptions coming from once-loyal AT&T users.

In terms of Verizon’s standalone figures for the iPhone next year, Munster believes that Verizon will manage to sell around 9 million iPhones, with AT&T still maintaining a lead, with a prediction of 11 million iPhones sold next year.

You may think it’s slightly odd to be making bold predictions on the Verizon iPhone even before it has been announced, but Gene Munster is no stranger to the estimation game, even if his track record has proven to be a bit suspect at times.

Other analysts have also chimed in on sales predictions for the Verizon iPhone, as BMO Capital Markets believes the figure will actually be 8 million Verizon iPhones sold in 2011, while Merrill Lynch has gone one better by predicting an ambitious 10 million iPhones sold.

What are your thoughts on all of the figures? Providing that the iPhone is indeed coming to Verizon, do you think the estimations are correct or not? Personally speaking, we wouldn’t be surprised if Verizon end up much closer to AT&T at the end of 2011. Don’t forget that the majority of consumers have waited for the iPhone to land on Verizon since day one, and that includes AT&T users.

We wouldn’t bet against Verizon actually surpassing AT&T’s sales figures for the iPhone in 2011 – now that would be a remarkable feat for sure. Give us your thoughts on this.
