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?

I stand corrected then. Bizarre that Apple does such a thing. My buddy who works at a AT&T store says they always have a large stock of iPhones in their storage area. But, that's my fault for making an assumption. My apologies, and thank you for the correction.


Just to be clear, I'm sure your AT&T buddy does have a "large" stock of phones around, but "large" probably translates to a few weeks of inventory at most. A better question for him wouldn't be how many but how often do you get a shipment. Which is what Apple strives to do, ensure there is only a few weeks of inventory out in the world at any one time.
