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!

Down Nokia

All these excellent results, from Samsung and Apple, come primarily from the massive retraction of Nokia market share, due to Elop's decision to Osborne its own product line by calling it publicly a "burning platform", and then announcing its death without even a solid backup solution in place
Just look at how much Nokia has lost in a single year !
And now, give this market share to its stronger rivals. This makes for outstanding results.

Many thanks Elop for destroying a European company so effectively, in the tiny (and failed) hope to marginally improve the perspective of a US-based one.
