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.

Apple (AAPL) tends to score well in Piper Jaffray's "Taking Stock With Teens" reports, but the results of PFC's 18th semi-annual survey, released Tuesday, suggest that American teenagers are growing even more loyal to the Apple brand.
iPhones, iPods and iTunes emerged as clear winners in the Minneapolis-based brokerage house's study of the music and cellphone buying preferences of some 600 middle-class and upper middle-class teens.

Two surveys released Tuesday, one of American teenagers, the other of professionals and early adopters, show interest in Apple's (AAPL) iPhone holding steady despite increased competition from Research in Motion (RIMM), Google (GOOG) and Palm (PALM).
In its biannual "Taking Stock With Teens" survey, Piper Jaffray reported that the iPhone remains popular among U.S. teenagers -- although it's not as hot as it was immediately following the launch of the iPhone MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 7, 2009 6:09 PM ET
Who are these kids?
According to a Piper Jaffray survey of high school students released on Tuesday, 6 percent already own an iPhone and 9 percent expect to buy one in the next six months. That's twice as many teens as owned iPhones in Fall '07, three months after the device was first released, when 3 percent had already bought one and 9 percent planned to.

If the 980 students who participate in Piper Jaffray's bi-annual survey of American teenage buying patterns are any guide, a significant percentage of Apple's (AAPL) iPhones sold are ending up in the hands of adolescents.
In a report to clients issued this morning, analysts Gene Munster and Michael Olson report that
3% of students surveyed own iPhones and an additional 9% expect to buy an iPhone in the next 6 months.
