In North America, 77% carry iPhones and 57% own Macs.
FORTUNE -- There were several surprises in Katy Huberty's summary Friday of a survey of 530 Morgan Stanley summer analysts and associates in North America (NA), Asia Pacific (APAC) and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
First, who knew that Morgan Stanley hired so many summer interns?
And who knew that they were so devoted to Apple's (AAPL) products?
Huberty doesn't make a MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 23, 2013 6:22 AM ET
It wouldn't be a Munster forecast without an Apple television in it.
FORTUNE -- Jumping on AllThingD's report that Apple (AAPL) has scheduled a special event on Sept. 10 to introduce its latest crop of iPhones -- a rumor endorsed Monday with a "Yep" from The Loop's Jim Dalrymple -- Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster has issued his predictions for Apple's 2013-2014 product line-up.
"We believe now is the time to own shares of AAPL," he MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 13, 2013 9:13 AM ET
The reliability of its market research has been called into question twice in the past week.
FORTUNE -- It may be no accident that Samsung and Strategy Analytics both chose to locate their Korean headquarters in Seoul's prestigious Gangnam Building.
The Boston-based research and consulting firm does not advertise its roster of clients, except to say that they include "13 of the 15 top handset vendors."
But based on the number of reports MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 2, 2013 9:53 AM ET
Its (false) claim that the Nexus 7 outsold Apple's iPad in Japan is par for the course.
FORTUNE -- Kudos to SlashGear's Chris Burns for declining to take at face value Google's (GOOG) claim, made at the launch of the new version of the Nexus 7 tablet last week, that the original Nexus 7 was more popular in Japan than Apple's (AAPL) iPad.
Burns ran the numbers past IDC -- a research firm MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 31, 2013 7:13 AM ET
A recent ITC ruling in the global smartphone wars has teed up a hot-button issue in patent law. The White House has till Friday to weigh in. Will it?
By Roger Parloff, senior editor
FORTUNE -- This week we will see if President Barack Obama puts some muscle behind his recent professorial lectures on the need for patent reform.
Unless he acts, an order of the International Trade Commission will take effect MOREJul 30, 2013 12:35 PM ET
There were some inspired estimates, but nobody hit every nail on the head.
FORTUNE -- It's easy to make fun of Apple (AAPL) analysts -- and fun, too -- but in terms of their ability to accurately forecast the company's quarterly results, they've come a long way.
Two years ago, when Apple announced blow-out results that surprised nearly everybody, Wall Street's analysts missed the company's revenue and earnings by a combined average MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 24, 2013 8:26 AM ET
Pleased by iPhone, worried about iPad and China, anticipating new product launches.
FORTUNE -- The news from Apple's (AAPL) June earnings report might have been mixed, but the after-market traders liked what they heard. (Or was that just the shorts covering their derrières?)
In any event, we got a bumper crop of analyst's reports Wednesday morning, which we'll process in batches, putting new ones on top.
UPDATE: We got a new crop after lunch, MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 24, 2013 5:57 AM ET
Should we be surprised Microsoft had to write off $900 million in unsold tablets?
FORTUNE -- I don't spend a lot of time writing about Microsoft (MSFT) these days, but the company's re-entry into the tablet market last summer felt like news I should be covering.
After all, Apple (AAPL) had succeeded where Microsoft had, for so many years, failed. And now Redmond was back, gunning for the iPad.
So I watched Microsoft MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 20, 2013 10:22 AM ET
More firepower in the startup's bid to transform interactive books.
FORTUNE -- Just five months after digital book publisher Inkling launched Habitat, a set of cloud-based tools that let users create interactive books, the startup has picked up two powerful new partners. Publishing giants Pearson and Elsevier have announced multi-million dollar deals to use Inkling to build digital versions of the textbooks, scientific and technical journals they publish. The news comes MOREJessi Hempel, writer - Jul 17, 2013 12:20 PM ET
The analysts' estimates range from 13.5 million to 22 million. The median is 18 million.
FORTUNE -- Apple (AAPL) refreshed its iPad line out of sequence last fall to capitalize on the holiday quarter, and as a result the company's June quarter came and went without a new iPad to sell for the first time since Steve Jobs unveiled the device in 2010.
So nobody should be surprised, especially with competition in the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 17, 2013 11:06 AM ET
