Apple continues to add to its war chest, sells record numbers of iPhones
It's beginning to
become a broken record when reporting on Apple's quarterly earnings
, but the boys from Cupertino have done it again. Apple today announced its earnings for fiscal Q1 2012 and the results are as usual very impressive.
The company reported net profit of $13.06 billion on revenue of $46.33 billion ($13.87 per diluted share). Profit for fiscal Q1 2012 was more than double that of fiscal Q1 2011, while gross margins came in at 44.7 percent compared to 38.5 percent a year ago.
“We’re thrilled with our outstanding results and record-breaking sales of iPhones, iPads and Macs,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “Apple’s momentum is incredibly strong, and we have some amazing new products in the pipeline.”
As for product sales numbers, Apple sold 37.04 million iPhones during the quarter (a 128 percent increase) and 15.43 million iPads (a 111 percent increase). The company's Mac sales also saw an increase, but "only" saw a 24 percent increase year-over-year to 5.2 million units.
Apple iPods, however, continue their downward spiral in this age of digital convergence. Sales of the portable music players were down 21 percent to 15.4 million units.

You must be dumber than a rock. Apple's growth rate has beaten the PC industry for 23 straight quarters. All their trajectories are up, and they have iphone 5 coming which will be a monster. Apple makes MORE than 50% of ALL the smartphone profits the industry produces.
They are making serious inroads in the corporate world as well.
