According to recent NPD data, the iPhone 4S is doing so well in sales that it’s actually helping iOS catch up to Android in smartphone usage.
NPD says that in October and November iOS saw a major increase while Google’s platform lost ground against the rival. This data only includes smartphones, not tablets like the iPad and the Galaxy Tab.
Currently, Android has about 47 percent of the market, and iOS has 43 percent. That’s just four percentage points lower than Google’s mobile OS.
Even crazier? NPD’s data also shows that the two platforms have a combined 90 percent of the US smartphone market. Dang.
