Apple Another solid quarter for Apple. "The Company sold 35.1 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 88 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 11.8 million iPads during the quarter, a 151 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 4 million Macs during the quarter, a 7 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 7.7 million iPods, a 15 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter." The official Apple Money Pile: $110 billion. That's where those 47% profit margins you pay go to!

People are looking at them on display, but are signing up for the new HTC OneXs' and Samsung Notes.

Cool story bro. Here's another anecdote for you: I visited China for business less than a week ago. I more brand-spanking new iPhones and iPads than anything else. Nearly everyone from managers to staff had one; even the courier had one!

From New York Times, April 24, 2012:

Mr. Cook said that Apple’s quarterly revenue from China was $7.9 billion, about 20 percent of total company revenue. Furthermore, that was triple Apple’s China sales in the same period a year ago.

That's a lot of shipped units for a country that is supposedly more interested in HTCs and Samsung Notes.
