Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster, the same Munster who predicted 10 million iPhone 5 sales (and all the HDTV predictions), is out with the firm’s semi-annual survey of device ownership among teens. AllThingsD has the survey results of 7,700 U.S. teens included, showing a 34 percent increase in iPhone ownership and a lot of interest in a $300 iPad mini:

  • 40 percent own iPhones (up from 34 percent six months ago).
  • 62 percent plan to buy an iPhone in the next six months (22 percent said their next phone would run Android).
  • 44 percent own a tablet (up from 36 percent six months ago).
  • Of those who own tablets, 72 percent own iPads.
  • Of those who do not own tablets, but plan to buy one in the next six months, 74 percent hope to buy an iPad.
  • 43 percent said they’d be more likely to buy an iPad if Apple released a smaller version of the device at $299.
