Yesterday Apple released their Q1 2011 earnings call. Apple has just had their best quarter ever, racking in over $26.7 billion in revenue, a number which blows away even the most optimistic Wall Street projections.
In Q1 2011, Apple managed to sell an impressive:
- 16.24 million iPhones
- 7.33 million iPads
- 4.13 million Macs
Steve Jobs did not appear during the conference call, and his recent sick leave was not discussed either, he did however, provide a quote for the press release, saying:
“We had a phenomenal holiday quarter with record Mac, iPhone and iPad sales. We are firing on all cylinders and we’ve got some exciting things in the pipeline for this year including iPhone 4 on Verizon which customers can’t wait to get their hands on.”
Apple projects $22 billion in revenue for next quarter, as well as earnings per share of $4.90. Given Apple’s history surprising its shareholders, it’s probably going to be a lot more.
