Forums - Mobile Discussion - Android market share plummets in November as iPhone sales surge from 26% to 43%, according to NPD

The release of the iPhone 4S has driven significant growth for the iOS platform, with one analysis finding that Apple's share of U.S. smartphone sales grew from 26 percent in the third quarter of 2011 to 43 percent in October and November.

According to research firm The NPD Group's data, Android smartphone sales dropped off from 60 percent in the third quarter of 2011 to 47 percent during the two-month period, as noted by TechCrunch.

Apple is widely expected to report soaring iPhone sales when it announces its December quarter results on Tuesday, Jan. 24. The consensus estimate among a poll of professional analysts stands at 29.74 million, while the average forecast among independent analysts and bloggers is 33.4 million units.

The iPhone's growth momentum could also carry into 2012, as a recent survey of North American consumers revealed that 54 percent plan on buying an iPhone.

Some are already predicting 35-38m iPhones sold last quarter (don't think they could produce that much but the demand was there anyways, so who knows). Pretty incredible.

Just imagine when Siri is much more "advanced" than now...

Surprising but I still think that in the long run Apple is going to lose against Android, they are basically up vs all other manufacturers.

I'm guessing the iPhone is a popular holiday item. As the year moves a long I'm sure we'll see Android take the market share back and then some.
