The iPhone has been ranked as the top revenue driver on AT&T’s website from November 2008 – January 2009, according to the latest data from comScore. The latest report also found the iPhone to be ranked ninth in total unit sales from AT&T’s online store; the top seller by unit sales was the refurbished LG Shine, 95% of which were offered for free. These numbers are quite similar to those found with Verizon’s flagship handset, the Blackberry Storm, and with T-Mobile’s HTC G1, both of which were the top revenue driver for their respective carrier’s websites during the period, and both of which were ranked eighth in total unit sales. Sprint’s Samsung Instinct, by comparison, was only ranked seventh by sales revenue, and fifteenth by unit sales.
