PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In its analysis of last year's smartphone market in the U.S., NPD found that market share for Apple's iOS went up following the release of the iPhone 4S, to 43 percent of all smartphone sales in October and November from 26 percent in the third quarter. Android, meanwhile, retained its lead, but lost market share towards the end of the year, dropping in October and November to 47 percent from 60 percent in the previous quarter. These are some dramatic shifts in market share but what do they really mean to you and me?

You're ignoring the fact that iPhone 4 sales increased sequentially quarter-over-quarter for 4 out of 5 quarters of flagship availability, outselling the latest and greatest Android phones to this day, 18 months later (at least in the US, and highly likely in several other major markets).
