Apple CEO: sales in the enterprise market are "unbelievable"

As much as I love my iPhone 5s, until they start allowing the iPhone to be connected as a usb hdd and add files as attachment to emails I simply don't see it working out as quickly as they hope.
That said, I do a lot of IT work for the govt and they have already begun transitioning to iPads and iPhones.

I was just commenting last week to my friends about how crappy my iPhone is for email management. Attachments are a pain. And, I don't know if it's the iPhone email/calendar software or exchange, but calendaring is abysmal. The phone is great as a portable, simple convenience, but as a robust work device, they has some work to do.

Numbers of sales in the enterprise market please. "Unbelievable" can be interpreted a number of ways. I am always suspicious when numbers are not provided.

You're always trolling apple articles too. They're the 455 billion dollar company, you're the iHater troll dude, they know what they're doing.

It doesn't even matter how many iPads or iPhones they have in the corporate section because as long as Apple doesn't have a "Pro" tier of products with VERY high margins and price, they won't make any real money from the corporate sector at all. The entire sector will amount to a few million in sales and that is a drop in the bucket compared to the consumer side. The only way to make money in that segment is to over price everything even more, but currently that tier of products does not exist. So now we wait and watch for the "Pro" iPad, with the specs of an iPad Air priced at $5000.

I call 455 billion real money, regardless what sector it comes from. You shoulda deleted this post dude. That was stupid, I love to read these armchair predictions of apple failure, and ultimate demise from overweight, lonely, no life having trolls like post 6. Cracks me up, how much you hate apple and want them to fail.

4554X0.7 isn't in America. Moment they get that money in they lose quite a bit in terms of TAX.
How much was Enron before the overnight collapse?

And a dose of Apple's worth is tied up in their stock value, hardly what I would call "real" money, especially the way their stock has fluctuated.

If the numbers are "unbelieveable" why did they miss their target so badly this quarter? How bad of a quarter would it have been if enterprise wasn't "Unbelieveable".

Finalflash predicts a going outta business sale this Saturday by apple. Slashing all prices, everything must go, 90% off all items, mention Finalflash and get an additional 5% off. Doors open at 6am until all items are sold.

I am just not understanding people's logic on here. If it's doom and gloom for Apple, then what would we say about HTC, LG, Sony, and the other manufacturers? It looks like all of the manufacturers earning report was a mixed bag. Even with Samsung selling a staggering amount of devices for the quarter as well they had a mixed report as well. Maybe I am seeing something wrong here I guess (sigh)

Did you buy into AAPL when it was north of $700? Otherwise, why the desperation? It seems like you are compelled to counter every post that even slightly questions Apple.

How is that any different than you commenting on every Apple article with negativity? In the words of Rodney King, "Why cant we all just get along?" LOL!

Just as it seems you love to attack, and bash every article related to apple.

Asking for real numbers is an attack? If Google was putting up superlatives in an attempt to spin their Android market share, I would be similarly skeptical. When things were going well, Team Apple was specific about their performance as well. Terms like 'Unbelievable' give me pause. Similar spin exercises were part of RIM/BB announcements as they were riding the downward spiral.
