“RBC Capital’s Mike Abramsky has raised his fourth quarter iPhone and iPad estimates based on the results of a survey of 2,200 potential buyers. The survey, conducted in August by ChangeWave research, showed what Abramsky called ‘unprecedented iPhone 5 demand and strong back-to-school iPad buying intentions,'” Philip Elmer-DeWitt reports for Fortune.

“Based on these results, Abramsky has raised his fourth quarter iPad estimate to 12.5 million units (from 10.5 million) and his first quarter 2012 iPhone estimate to 27 million units (from 24.4 million). His Q4 2011 iPhone estimate remains unchanged at 19.5 million,” P.E.D. reports.
