FORTUNE -- The results of Piper Jaffray's 25th bi-annual teen survey came in Tuesday afternoon. Once again, it showed Apple (AAPL) to be the most desired brand among American teenagers who care about things like smartphones and tablets, although Google's (GOOG) Android did make some gains.
The key findings:
"We believe that despite the push from competitive products, particularly from Samsung, it appears Apple has solidly remained the platform of choice for teens," wrote Piper Jaffray senior analyst Gene Munster.
The results were compiled from classroom visits and electronic surveys of 1,600 teens from high-income familiars (household income: $104,000) and similar visits with 3,600 teens from average-income families ($54,000).
The full survey, with a lot of information about fashion trends, is available as a pdf at Taking Stock With Teens.

"The bottom line," writes Gene Munster in a note summarizing the results of Piper Jaffray's latest survey of the aspirations of American teenagers, "is that 40% of students plan on buying an iPhone in the next 6 months while 19% of non-tablet owners plan on purchasing a tablet in the next 6 months."

And a record 37% expect to buy one -- or get their parents to -- in the next 6 months
In the spring of 2009, Piper Jaffray's biannual survey of American teenagers reported that 8% already owned iPhones and 16% planned to buy one in the next six months. Half a year later, when the PJC surveyors went back out into the field, the teens had made good their word: 15% MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 6, 2011 7:03 AM ET
An all-time high, up from 22% last year. Teen iPhone ownership, however, is down slightly
"We believe the teen demographic is a critical component of long-term growth in the digital music and mobile markets, and Apple is taking its lead in music and leveraging it in the mobile category."
