Apple Apple reported its quarterly results, and thanks to the iPhone 4S and the iPad, Apple is putting out bizarre figures - 37 million iPhones, 15.5 million iPads. "The Company sold 37.04 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 128 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.43 million iPads during the quarter, a 111 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 5.2 million Macs during the quarter, a 26 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.4 million iPods, a 21 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter." Is this the end of Android's dominance, or just a single uberquarter due to the new iPhone?

Apple already putout the next Q guidance at 32bn in revenue. That is 5bn less than guidance for this one. (Their guidance for 2012Q1 was 37bn).
So even Apple does not expect that their sales will stay the same. Estimated Android smartphone sales are 63mil, iOS device sales are about 60mil (including the seasonal surge of iPod Touch'es).

In addition, their 2012Q1(financial results for calendar Q4, last 3 months of, 2011) included additional week of 2012.(Didn't verify the last statement)


You're really spending a lot of time trying to rationalize this aren't you? Apple always provides lower guidance for q2, its the quarter after Christmas, nearly all consumer goods manufactures and retailers do this. And their quarterly report indicates their quarter ended on Dec 31, 2011.
