The iPhone's (AAPL) U.S. share soared to 53.3% in the 12 weeks ending Nov. 25, per Kantar ComTech - that's up from 48.1% in the 12 weeks ending Oct. 28, and far above the 35.8% seen in the year-ago period. Android's (GOOG) U.S. share fell to 41.9% (down 1090 bps Y/Y). But again, the roles are switched in Europe, and then some: Android had a 61% share in the EU5 (up 920 bps Y/Y), and the iPhone 25.3% (up 250 bps). Do European sales have something to do with iPhone order cut reports? Android had 72.2% of "Urban China," and 60.7% of Brazil. (tables - PDF)
