At least, that’s according to a rough forecast offered by Asymco analyst Horace Dediu.

Dediu kicked off his analysis with Apple ‘s announcement last week that the number of registered iTunes accounts with 1-click purchasing has hit 435 million.

Apple is currently adding around 12 million new iTunes account each month, according to the analyst. And the rate of growth itself has continued to accelerate over time. Apple also revealed last week that it has sold around 400 million iOS devices over time, so the rise in iTunes accounts has almost echoed the rise in iDevices.
