Apple sure had a great holiday season. The company sold record number of phones and other gadgets. According to Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, viagra 100mg iPhone 4S helped the company in selling more iPhones than all the Android phones combined. The company shipped 37.04 million iPhones during the final quarter of the last year and retained 44.9 percent market share. Apple had almost half of this during the corresponding quarter of 2010.
In its report, Kantar Worldpanel stated, “Overall, Apple sales are now growing at a faster rate than Android across the nine countries we cover.” The report also stated that in the same quarter, Android registered marginal loss in their market share to 44.8 percent. Earlier, its market share stood at 50 percent.
But not all iPhones are created equal. iPhone 4S, despite its milder debut, now accounts for about 89 percent of all the iPhones sold. It seems like iPhone owners are not very price conscious. Despite being available for free, iPhone 3GS accounts for only 4 percent of all the iPhones sold, while iPhone 4 constituted 7 percent. According to AllThingsD, “Forty-two percent of iPhone buyers broke existing carrier contracts to get the new iPhone 4S. And 19 percent of these iPhone 4S buyers sold their old iPhone in the secondary market.” The report also said that 19 percent of iPhone 4S buyers were iPhone 4 owners, who chose to upgrade their barely a year old phone.
