AT&T Mobility chief Ralph de la Vega said Wednesday that the carrier had sold 6.4 million smartphones in the first two months of the fourth quarter, putting it on pace to set a record for the period as well as reach 26 million units for the year, 1 million more than the company had expected. "What we're seeing is tremendous response in the marketplace. Excitement is at all-time high. I feel very good about momentum going into December," he said, adding that Apple has solved its iPhone distribution issues and that other handsets, such as the LG Optimus G and Nokia Lumia 920, are selling well.
