Apple iPhones is taking market share back from Android, accounting for 53.3% of U.S. smartphone sales for the 12-week period ending November 25, according to the market research firm Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.

This is the first time Apple’s share of the U.S. market has topped 50%, Kantar said.

During the same period, Android’s share of the market fell to 41.9% of the market, while Microsoft Windows Phone held 2.7% share. Research In Motion had just 1.4% of the market in the period.

The research firm notes that AT&T accounted for 35.4% of smartphones sold in the U.S. in the period, ahead of Verizon Wireless at 31.9% and Sprint at 14.5%.

“The iPhone 5 has been successful this period however we also see that Apple’s older models – the iPhone 4S and 4 have also contributed to the growing share of iOS,” Kantar Worldpanel ComTech analyst Mary-Ann Parlato said in a statement. “This is particularly the case for first-time smartphone iPhone buyers where we see the older models still selling well amongst this group.”

Among iPhone buyers in November, 27% upgraded from another smartphone OS, 34% upgraded from a previous iPhone and 40% upgraded to their first smartphone.

It cant be much, its impossible, if android and iPhone made new sell records and around ten million devices sold, so theres not much room for WP phones, because that means Apple sold around 8 million iPhones. So theres two million or something for WP and android to share.
