Did the Verizon Palm Pixi/Pre Plus Actually Do Pretty Well?

I just ran across an analysis at asymco.com intended to compare Verizon’s smartphone sales overall (and primarily Android) to AT&T’s iPhone sales. I don’t care about that so much, but what I did find interesting in the analysis (if the numbers are at all accurate) is just how many Palm webOS devices seem to have been sold:


Yes, it’s not the consistent sales experienced by Motorola, HTC, and RIM on Verizon’s network, but looking at this chart, I see at least a million units sold. I also see that Palm sales in the months of March, April, May, and June of 2010 were actually quite competitive. Not stellar or groundbreaking, but decent enough.

That surprises me given all of the noise at the time about Verizon’s horrible sales practices as applied to webOS devices, and it also makes me wonder why the sales reps who weren’t selling them didn’t see some value in doing so.

Anybody draw a completely different conclusion from this analysis?
