For the September quarter, when the iPhone 3G launches, Abramsky expects Apple to sell 5.1 million iPhones up 356% year-over-year and 70% above the consensus 3 million units. For the December holiday quarter, he expects sales of 6.5 million iPhones, up 181% year-over-year, and 44% above the 4.5 million unit consensus.
