I was at a small gathering yesterday, about ten people; every single one had an iPhone. Some sailing friends of mine asked my opinion: should they get an iPhone, or an iPad? Those were their choices, android or pc never mentioned. They say they've run into many fellow sailors who use the iPad for a navigation device. I was in Sears and discovered the sales people using iPads. Watching college football, I heard Stanford issues iPads to its football team members for football plays/strategy. All these are anecdotal, but none the less the sum is compelling. AAPL seems to sell every unit of everything it makes with no problem. I can't imagine they will not have a blow-out sales and earnings report this month.
When I was in NY's new Chinatown, in Queens (200,000 Chinese live in one section), at 3 restaurants 18 of 20 immigrant Chinese with Smartphones were using Apple IPHONES not Android phones. When Chinese can buy Iphones cheaper in USA than $850 in China, they all buy Apple products it seems.
