Apple certainly must be doing something right. According to a Wired Magazine they’ve had their best first quarter ever:
Thanks to selling an unbelievable 21.1 million iPods over the holidays, Apple reported record-breaking revenues for the December quarter of more than $7 billion. $1 billion of that is pure profit.
“We’ve just kicked off what is going to be a very strong new product year for Apple by launching Apple TV and the revolutionary iPhone,” said El Jobso in a statement.
Apple aslo sold 1.6 million Macs, which ain’t too shabby either. Also a record, I believe. Almost 1 million of those were portables and 600,000 desktops, according to an Apple data sheet.
And contrary to reports from Forester that iTunes sales are on the slide, Apple says they were up 30 percent (year on year) in the December quarter.
Not too shabby.
