The war between iOS and Android seems to be going Apple way. iPhone 4S sales figures show that Apple is beating Android smart phones hands down
iPhone 4S sales are going up and up. Millions of iPhone 4S units are being sold every month. And the bosses at Cupertino based Apple are all smile as the best smart phone of them all keeps Apple’s cash registers ringing.
iPhone 4S sales have gone up steadily over the last more than two months since its launch mid October 2011. According to a research note from analyst firm Canaccord Genuity, iPhone 4S was the best selling smartphone in October (despite only being available for half the month) on all of the carriers offering the handset: AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. It continued its impressive performance in subsequent months and there are reasons to believe that the new sales figures for December will shatter all previous sales records even from Apple.
Another thing that has amazed many an analysts is the fact that while iPhone 4S sales has been going up, the iPhone 4 sales is not going down substantially.
In November too iPhone 4S sales continued their strong surge. It was the best-selling smartphone at Verizon Wireless, AT&T and Sprint in November.
Meanwhile there are indications that finally Apple has a perfect product to beat all Android smart phones put together. A latest report that may be hard to digest for many Android fans, out of those who bought a new smartphone in December, only a minority chose Android over the iPhone. Android’s dominance fell from close to 62 percent to less than 47 percent
So it is becoming harder for Android phones to survive against a smart phone from Apple that seems a perfect choice for people. A report while talking about the last three months says, “Over the entire three-month period–not monthly, as previously shown–it was a similar story. During the fourth quarter, 51.7 percent of people who bought devices went with an Android handset. Apple’s iPhone accounted 37 percent. RIM’s BlackBerry came in at 6 percent”.
