Apple’s AAPL share of the U.S. smartphone market nearly caught up to Google’s GOOG Android in the first two months of the fourth quarter, according to a new report from the NPD Group.

Apple’s market share jumped from 26% in Q3 to 43% in October and November while Android’s fell from 60% to 47%.

Underscoring Apple’s strength going into the holiday sales period, the company had the three best-selling smartphones — the iPhone 4S, 4 and 3GS — ┬áin NPD’s list top 10 models for October and November.
