Analyst thinks Apple could sell 190 million iPhones in 2012

I would be 100% shocked if the iPhone sells more in Q1 than Q4.
Projections are highly optimistic but I would guess not unreasonable depending on what they get out of the iPhone 5 and what markets they expand into. As well as what markets they get banned from if any.

Hey, it has been really peaceful around here. Has Taco been banned again?

Taco, has been banned for a while now.
He created a few new accounts - which is also against the forum rules - so they all got banned. As his all recent posts have been trolling, we will give him some time before we allow him to post again.

Did anyone ever check on the "Antifanboy" account. 95% chance of finding a taco there.

I haven't noticed him in a couple days I think they banned him.

Yes, if you try hard enough, you may eventually fool some people. I installed the doggy door for you. I'm going to call you Lucy.

These numbers are as high as they go. Analyst predictions are a dime a million. Every day we hear this analyst says this and that and none of them agree. Will they have a good year? Yea, of course. Especially now that they have a new market in china. But they are priced so high for the average Chinese person, that its not going to be a huge increase in numbers. If you make 50 bux a month.. on the HIGH end of the scale (apple factory pay rates), then its going to take quite a long time to save up for an iphone.
if moto or sammy wins any of their banning suites against apple, thats going to put a big dent in those sales predictions as well. Too many factors to say anything other than " its going to be another good year more than likely".
But then again, Samsung is blowing their predictions out of the water too, so its still gonna be a tight race.

Many Chinese people are still not in a necessarily advantageous economic position, Lucy. Remixfa was saying that working for an Apple manufacturing partner is high end income for an average Chinese Joe.

original ipad for $99? Fat chance! $199 is the lowest I see that thing going, if its even still on shelves, solely to fend off the Kindle Fire, because most people wiuld rather have a 1st gen ipad than a Fire, I know I would even though it lacks a dual core processor and is an apple product, but unlike the fire its a GOOD product.
