Apple doesn't agree with NPD finding; Quashes Android surge report
They could not take it, so they have put forward their view. Apple on Tuesday questioned recent data showing smartphones using Android operating system surpassing iPhone sales in the United States, and said there are no signs that the competition is gaining in the smartphone market.
Smartphones using Android accounted for 28 percent of U.S. unit sales in the first quarter, ahead of Apple at 21 percent, research group NPD said on Monday. According to Apple, the NPD data didn’t provide a complete picture.
“This is a very limited report on 150,000 U.S. consumers responding to an online survey and does not account for the more than 85 million iPhone and iPod touch customers worldwide,” said Apple spokeswoman Natalie Harrison.
Well, the time is not far when Android will outsell iPhone worldwide also. Keep in that mind Apple.
