Investment bank PiperJaffray conducted a study involving 500 high school students at 11 different institutions across the country, asking each about their interest and buying patterns in portable digital audio and online music.
The results discovered that nearly 85% of students saying they were already familiar with the iPhone, and of those students, 25% said they’d be willing to buy one for $500.
However, Gene Munster, senior analyst at PiperJaffray said he’s modeling for Apple to sell around 660,000 iPhones during the 2007 fiscal year ending September and just another 4 million next year.
