White iPhone 4CUPERTINO, USA – Although there is a hype surrounding the upcoming and anticipated iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 remains the top selling smartphone in the U.S until now, topping the heap on the AT&T and Verizon network.

A check with U.S network carriers indicated that the sales of the iPhone 4 remain the highest in the Verizon and AT&T  circle despite the rising hype and anticipation of the launch of the iPhone 5, analyst Michael Walkley with Canaccord Genuity revealed in a note to investors. In relation to these reports, the iPhone 3GS remained the second to selling smartphone in the AT&T network.

The iPhone 4 and the 3GS beat out the Samsung Infuse 4G which was at the third spot for the best selling handset in the AT&T circle. At Verizon, coming in at the second spot was Samsung Charge 4G, and the in the third spot it was HTC Thunderbolt 4G.

“While Motorola Mobility and RIM enjoyed stronger sell-through trends in 2010, our (first half of calendar 2011) checks indicate a clear trend toward increasing share for Apple, HTC and Samsung,” Walkley wrote.

It’s not only the iPhone 4 that is enjoying the top spot, alongside it is the iPad 2 that has become the highest-selling tablet in the AT&T and Verizon network in the U.S

“Based on solid demand trends for iPhone/iPad, poor sell-through trends for competing tablet offerings, and the ramping iOS ecosystem driving longer-term replacement sales, we believe Apple will maintain dominant value share of both the tablet and smartphone markets to drive healthy long-term earnings growth,” Walkley concluded.
