Apple Blows Past Earnings Expectations

Just like Yahoo!, Apple reported quarterly revenues this afternoon. Apple "posted revenue of $8.34 billion and a net quarterly profit of $1.23 billion . . ." The revenues blew past analyst expectations as the "best non-holiday quarter" in Apple history. And now the numbers:

Apple sold 2.6 million Macintosh computers during the quarter, representing a four percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 10.2 million iPods during the quarter, representing a seven percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter. Quarterly iPhones sold were 5.2 million, representing 626 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter.   

That's a lot of iPhones. It's an especially impressive quarter given how bad the economy remains.
