Apple shrugs off NPD report on Android's growth

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is trying to brush aside a report from earlier this week that showed Google's Android platform beating out the iPhone for the No. 2 spot in terms of U.S. smartphone market share. The report, issued by the NPD Group, found that Android represented 28 percent of unit sales in the first quarter, besting Apple's 21 percent. Apple, in addressing the report, largely tried to change the subject. The company took issue with the report's methodology, which was based on a survey of 150,000 U.S. consumers. Apple said that report did not account for the strides it has made in terms of its global smartphone market share or its growth in iPhone shipments. Article
