Apple posts their latest financial results

And the results are good… Apple shifted a total of 2.94 million Macs, an increase of 33% from last year, compared to an increase of 25% for the overall PC industry. However, iPhone is clearly Apple’s standout device. (Let me be the first to point out that Apple is still only 3.6 percent of the entire industry…)
A total of 8.75 million iPhones were sold worldwide, which is an increase of 131% growth over last year. Well, so which parts of Apple’s product line did not do well? iPods dropped about 1% from last year – but that is still 10.89 million of them sold. Apple also still insists that the Apple TV is a “hobby”…
“œWe‘re thrilled to report our best non-holiday quarter ever, with revenues up 49 percent and profits up 90 percent,“ said Steve Jobs, Apple‘s CEO. “œWe‘ve launched our revolutionary new iPad and users are loving it, and we have several more extraordinary products in the pipeline for this year.“
“œLooking ahead to the third fiscal quarter of 2010, we expect revenue in the range of about $13.0 billion to $13.4 billion and we expect diluted earnings per share in the range of about $2.28 to $2.39,“ says Peter Oppenheimer, Apple‘s CFO.
