Apple has blow-out fourth quarter as the stock soars after hours
Apple had a blow out fourth quarter, led by the sales of 7.4 million of it's touchscreen iPhone. The period was the first full three month quarter since the Cupertino based firm launched the newest 3GS model of the iPhone. 7% more handsets were sold compared to the previous year's quarter. The bottom line came out to a profit of $1.82 a share vs. expectations for $1.42. In straight dollar terms, that is a profit of $1.67 billion dollars on revenue of $9.87 billion dollars. Recovering Apple CEO Steve Jobs said, "We are thrilled to have sold more Macs and iPhones than in any previous quarter. We’ve got a very strong lineup for the holiday season and some really great new products in the pipeline for 2010.”  Imagine what Apple's numbers might have been in a great rip-snorting economy!

Hmmm... I notice you are the only post, HOVA. I guess there is nothing to say against irrefutable evidence. Nice job Apple. I really hope to see this light some fires unders some other manufacturers and Phone OS Developers... Need I name any?

You could just say all of them lol. It seems everyone is headed in the right direction, but I think they all still have a bit of work to do...

4th Quarter? Um, am I missing something? Lets see there's 4 quarters in a dollar, but we have 3 more months left this year...so, uhh I guess this next quarter would be 5th quarter? Do you mean 4th quarter of their fiscal year?? "Imagine what Apple's numbers might have been in a great rip-snorting economy!" Really?? That was an incredibly unintelligent comment. It doesnt take a degree in economics to understand that a better economy means more sales! Another great job of reporting (PA staff slobbing the knob of Apple.)

I'm with you fanman...I don't want to learn another computer system (Apple or Linux), and don't like proprietary softwares/formats...and REALLY tired of the whining when an OS other than windows isn't supported for a particular application. If you want it to work, go with the flow. If you're gonna swim upstream, expect some bumps.

A 2 year old could pick up how to use the iPhone overnight. You sound like a bunch of senior citizens afraid of change. Gimme a break. I SERIOUSLY can't wait for the day it's on Verizon so all you idiots stop hating after you finally take the chance to see what a truly great phone it is. Obviously not all of you will, but 80% of the haters will realize it's really a good phone and they've just been bitching cause their precious carrier, who's red check mark is stuck up their ass, hasn't gotten it yet.
