Apple (AAPL -1%) is slipping ahead of today's FQ4 report. Sprint disclosed this morning it sold 1.5M iPhones in Q3, even with Q2 - Verizon and AT&T had both reported Q/Q increases in iPhone sales. At this point, U.S. iPhone sales and perhaps also total iPad sales are known quantities. The big wild cards are Europe (pressured by macro issues and Android sales) and China (some macro/Android concerns, but also a place where smartphone demand is strong and Apple's sales have been soaring). The Street will also be paying close attention to any color on supply constraints. (yesterday)
