A Merrill Lynch analyst called Scott Craig has recently updated his 2010 and 2011 estimated iPhone sales figures, his predictions are posted on Barron’s and take into account whether or not a Verizon iPhone is ever released.
Craig believes that 33 million iPhone sales are “basically achievable” within 2010, he feels that with or without a Verizon deal this figure is possible.
In 2011 he believes that 44 million iPhones could be sold, however for these figures to come in there would have to be a Verizon deal, he believes that a Verzion deal alone could increase iPhone units sales by 8 million for 2011.
Without a Verizon deal Craig believes that 2011 could see around 35 million units sold, however if Verizon and other carriers are added this figure could be close to 55 million.
