iPhone Revealed As Top Selling Smartphone of Q4 2012.

According to Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, iPhone is the top selling smartphone of Q4 2012. During the period ending December 23rd, 2012, iPhone had 51.2% of market sales.

While iPhones are still on top, Android is trying to keep sales steady with 44.8% to 44.2% market share. During the 12 weeks leading up to December, Windows phones were holding down third place with 2.6% of smartphones.

Mary-Ann Parlato at Kantar Worldpanel ComTech says, “Apple’s continual improvement is thanks to both the iPhone 5 and older models attracting various customer groups, from repeat Apple buyers, first time smartphone buyers and those coming from other smartphone brands. In particular, 36% of iOS sales were derived from other smartphone users over the last year. While this figure remains stable over time, the proportion of Android users moving towards the Apple brand increases. 19% of iOS sales over the last year were derived from Android users, compared to 9% in 2011.”

In Addition, Verizon verified the iPhone as their top selling phone in the fourth quarter with 6.2 million units sold, which was about double the units sold during the same period of the previous year.

These sales numbers appear to contradict any doubt of iPhone sales due to alleged reports of Apple reducing orders for iPhone parts.
