The iPhone is officially the most popular smartphone in the United States. The latest data sales from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech reveal Apple’s iPhone now accounts for more than 53 percent of all smartphones sold in the U.S., as of the 12 weeks ended November 25th.
Compared to stats from the same time last year, iPhone sales have increased 17.5 percent while Android sales have seen a 10.9 percent drop. As it stands today, the iPhone now accounts for 53.3 percent of all U.S. sales while the Android sits at 41.9 percent.
Windows devices saw a slight increase in sales, raising .6 percent, while RIM and Symbian both saw small declines.
Obviously this is a tremendous feat for Apple whose new-found popularity is at its highest since the iPhone first debuted in 2007. What this means for mobile gaming remains to be seen, but it’s obviously not a bad sign. Smartphone popularity is only growing stateside and it looks to be an exciting year!
