Apple at highestever iPhone marketshare in US

All models of the iPhone accounted for 53.3 percent of all smartphone purchases in the US in the 12 weeks ending November 25, according to research from Kantar Worldpanel Comtech.

That’s good news for Apple, as the figure is the highest it’s ever been in the US, rising more than 5 percentage points from the 12-week figure from October. Android, at 41.9 percent, and RIM were the the losers in the US. The Windows Phone platform is now in third place, grabbing a little over 7 percent of all purchases in the study time period.
