iPhone 4S

Apple's iPhone made up a whopping 66 per cent of all sales made at AT&T retail stores during the Christmas period, according to a source within the mobile carrier.

The Mac Observer reports that between December 1st and December 27th, AT&T sold 981,000 iPhone devices compared to just 128,000 Android phones.

The Android figure accounts for 8.5 per cent of total sales made in store, which is even eclipsed by sales of basic flip and slider phones (8.6 per cent) made by the company.

RIM is said to have fared even worse than Android with only 5 per cent of all sales, but most observers would have expected the gap between iOS and Android to be much smaller.
