iPhone maintained lead in US, #1 in Japan for holiday season

iOS continues to lead as the top selling smartphone platform sold in the U.S, with 51.2% of market sales for the 12 week period ending December 23rd, 2012, according to data released today by Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.

Interesting to note that Android “remained stable” year over year, with Windows a very distant third.

The same company also says iPhone is big in Japan, taking two-thirds of the smartphone market.

      Very well remembered. it’s a real shame that the fudsters at the time weren’t taken to task for it. Bit like the “Apple is losing in China” anti-hype when they aren’t even playing there yet.
