Ryan Kim, reporting for GigaOM on the latest US smartphone market share numbers from the NPD Group:
In a CES telecom fact sheet, the research firm said that iOS has
zoomed up to 43 percent of sales in October and November, compared
with 26 percent in the third quarter. Meanwhile, Android’s share
dropped from a high of 60 percent in the third quarter to 47
percent in October and November.
I’m chalking this report up as a statistical outlier for now, but maybe this is simply what happens when the iPhone is available on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint.
