T-Mobile boosts US iPhone sales, Android retains leadership
The iPhone's share of the US smartphone market rose 3.5 percent year-over-year during a three-month period ending in May 2013, according to new Kantar Worldpanel data. The growth to 41.9 percent of sales is credited in large part to the <a href="http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/12/some.240000.units.available.across.carriers.outlet s/">successful launch of the phone on T-Mobile</a>. Prior to April, T-Mobile was the last major national carrier without the iPhone.<br /><br />Since then the device has represented about 31 percent of T-Mobile smartphone sales. That is, however, less than a 60.5 percent figure at AT&T, and 43.8 percent at Verizon. Sprint is unmentioned. Kantar notes, though, that Sprint and T-Mobile each account for relatively small portions of the US smartphone market -- 12.7 and 10.1 percent, respectively. Verizon is in the lead at 34.6 percent, while AT&T sits at 29.<br />

The iPhone is still dwarfed in the US by Android devices, which inched ahead 0.1 points in the survey period to 52 percent. Microsoft's Windows Phone has nevertheless established a beachhead, growing 0.9 percent to a 4.6 percent share.
