A Cupertino Comeback: Apple and Android Are Almost Tied in U.S. Sales

SHARE

DailyTech: According to research from Nielsen Mobile, sales of iOS and Android phones were nearly tied in December. Apple captured 44.5 percent of the smarthone market, while Android had 46.9 percent. As recently as October, Android phones had outsold iPhones 61.6 percent to 25.1 percent.

Analysts say the popularity of the iPhone 4S should receive much of the credit for Apple's recent sales gains.
