Verizon Still Stealing Customers From AT&T

Despite having an exclusive on a much-hyped phone, AT&T is still losing customers to Verizon, says the NYT.

From the NYT:

Despite the pull of the iPhone, Verizon has managed to steadily increase its share of the smartphone market, to 26 percent in May, from 20 percent in late 2008. In the same period, AT&T’s market share slipped to 40 percent, from around 45 percent, according to comScore. Those numbers do not take into account the impact of the popular iPhone 4, released last month.

The article points to the new Droid X, from Google and Motorola, as the next coming of the Jesusphone, and suggests that Verizon’s partnership with Google may be enough to keep draining AT&T of customers.

What do you think? Are you into the Droid phones?
