AT&T says it sold more than 10M smartphones in 4Q

DALLAS – AT&T says it sold more than 10 million smartphones in the last three months of 2012, topping its previous record of 9.4 million set in the same period a year earlier.

AT&T Inc. said Tuesday that the latest period marked the best-ever quarterly sales of Android and Apple smartphones.

The company says that it sold more than 110,000 smartphones a day on average.

In the third quarter, AT&T said it sold 6.1 million smartphones. The fourth quarter is a busy period for gadget sales because of the holidays.

The Dallas-based company plans to report its fourth-quarter results after the market closes on Jan. 24.
