John Paczkowski in AllThingsD on Apple’s stellar quarter:
Apple sold 3.47 million Macs during the quarter (no cannibalization by the iPad here), a 33 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter and a new quarterly record. It sold 8.4 million iPhones–61 percent more than it did a year ago. And it sold 3.27 million iPads in the device’s first quarter at market.
Posting third-quarter results after the bell Tuesday, the company reported earnings per share of $3.51 on revenues of $15.7 billion–a record 78 percent increase over the same period a year ago. The Street had been looking for EPS of $3.11 on revenues of $14.75 billion.
Goodbye, Antennagate. We hardly knew ye.
