Apple will be announcing last quarter's results on January 24
Apple issued a statement that it will announce Q4 (Q1 for Apple's way of counting) fiscal results on January 24. Analysts believe that the world's most-profitable cell phone company might have cracked the 30 million smartphones sold barrier in the October-December period.

Reports showed that the iPhone 4S is flying off the shelves for the holidays, and Apple might have also sold 13 million iPads, which is below some analyst's 16 million expectations, due they say partly to the cannibalization of some units by the Kindle Fire, but will be also a record tablet quarter for the fruit company, which sold 11.2 million slates the previous quarter. 

The big question is now if Apple managed to surpass Samsung in smartphone sales, since the Koreans are also staged to show a record holiday quarter in the mobile realm. The quarterly results will also be the first three months in Apple's new history without Steve Jobs, but rather Tim Cook at the helm, so that's another interesting tidbit to follow in three weeks time.

hahaha really king. Still riding that arguement. I guess its all perspective. Way to go android for out selling apple every day of the week. Way to have a business model that allows you to have multiple manufactures being able to produce phones for you. Easy money.

Okay that's fine. At least if your willing to admit to that. I'll admit that I would love to have an apple product. Buti hate not having the freedom of managing my main screen and widgets. I love widgets. Which is why i always hate on apple for not innovating more. Cause i would like to have a little more freedom on my phone than what apple offers its consumers. And I hate not having LTE on an apple. I love my macbook pro and will never got back to windows ever. LOVE it glad i made the change a year ago. But working in the phone industry seeing the flaws with both plat. I would rather o for android because they offer me more what i'm looking for. Just hate Verizon for charging me so much more for an android. Which is pushing me very soon to an iphone. Because i know thats bogus.
