News: Apple Have An Astounding First Quarter

Its nothing new to hear that Apple are successful right? But the latest release of the figures for their first quarter is simply outstanding. In the 14 week span Apple reported a total profit of 13.6 billion dollars. The recorded time ended on the 31st of December 2011. Just some food for thought, that amounts to around 971 million dollars every single week. 

The corporate giants have done it again.
Apple managed to supply 37 million iPhones, 128% more than last year. The iPhone wasn't the only star of the show though, the iPad sold over 15 million units which is another growth of 111% compared to 2010. Not every product has outsold itself though, the iPod sold 15.4 million iPods in the first quarter of this year which is 11% less than last year. 

Do these figures suggest the end of the iPod? Have other idevices pushed it aside, I hope not. Apple is all about media so all of their products have a great media player pre-installed rendering the iPod somewhat useless. What do you think about these insane figures? Let us know in the comments section.
