    Set to well 36 million units? Way to read numbers selectively! One analyst predicts 36 million in that article; the other predicts 15. And both are part of the Apple fan bandwagon that is Wall Street, if for no other reason than the cash flow...

    I'll predict a modest (but still impressive) 10 million units because of the faithfull Apple-believers, with a drastic drop next year as people realize it's actually not that useful and pretty damn ugly to boot.
