Apple has never been a company that felt obligated to provide responses to each and every press inquiry concerning Apple-related news. So it’s interesting to see that it gave the Loop’s Jim Dalrymple a statement concerning yesterday’s study that showed Android phones outselling iPhones in terms of units in the U.S.:
"This is a very limited report on 150,000 US consumers responding to an online survey and does not account for the more than 85 million iPhone and iPod touch customers worldwide,” Apple spokesperson Natalie Harrison, told The Loop. “IDC figures show that iPhone has 16.1 percent of the smartphone market and growing, far outselling Android on a worldwide basis. We had a record quarter with iPhone sales growing by 131 percent and with our new iPhone OS 4.0 software coming this summer, we see no signs of the competition catching up anytime soon.”
