Recently AT&T declared the results for the first financial quarter of 2010. It also stated that the carrier itself has activated about 2.7 million iPhones, which is down from last quarter’s 3.1 million figure. According to Apple, there has been an increase of about 15,000 units in comparison to the previous quarter.

In the recently held earnings conference call, it was decided that the United Stated, Spain and Germany would continue as the three major markets, offering the iPhone’s exclusive carrier relationships.
