9to5 Mac reports today that Apple’s newly announced stunning iPhone sales figures of 37 million in the fourth quarter mean that Apple has now overtaken Android in smartphone sales in the United States. The figure of 37 million iPhones sold represents a 129% unit increase, and 133% revenue increase, and was of course greatly helped by huge sales of the new iPhone 4S, which helped to see Apple soar above the many Android phones, such as the Motorola Mobility, and HTC and Sony Ericsson, all of which had disappointing results, according to 9to5 Mac.
