  1. Considering the fact that by far most of the world did not have iPhone 4S selling in the most of Q4, and many significant markets will not even have device at all until 2012Q1, these crazy bullish “33-38 million” sales figures for iPhones are unfounded.

    More sane basis for iPhone sales would be 25 million (up to 30 million, if manufacturing was capable enough in 2011Q4).
