Pisani has effd up the story 3x now on cnbc in the last 20 minutes, but T raised smartphone activations for the Q and year by 1m this morning at conference on the strength of the iphone 5 sales.
The 3rd time Pisani said flat sales of smartphones, but that is still not right.
YTD smartphone sales were 77% iPhones, with only 1 weekend of iPhone5 sales in September. Iphone 5 ativations in 4Q will be monstrously large as they have a full Q to sell them.
See Bloomberg and wire service articles for affirmation of my point.
Great news for T and AAPL -- exactly opposite Pisani's gaff comments.
