    They sold 10,200,000 iPods . I'm sure someone will spin this as evidence that ipod sales are slowing :rolleyes:

    1,389,000 iPhones

    iPhone sales still need to accelerate to make the goal. At the average rate they've been selling they'll make it to 5,500,000 or so...of course, I'm sure that sales will accelerate through Christmas given all the interest people have in my iPhone. Even my grandparents want one.

    $15.4 billion in cash, sitting there. Why not acquire a few games studios for some Mac exclusives and/or go for the throat with some very aggressively priced computers? Seems like now is as good a time as ever to grab some market share.

    Oh sorry, I forgot who I was talking about...

    That's the first time they've sold over 2 million computers in a quarter. Way to go Apple!

    I believe most analysts were predicting 770,000 iPhones sold during the quarter. Let's see what it does to the stock price.

    So far they've only sold in the USA. The next quarter sees the potential market double, with the UK, France and Germany all seeing the iPhone launch.

    I never expected iPhone sales to spike in sales. I really expect them to gradually get sold as people who didn't want to pay contract canceling fees to jump in on a phone more expensive than their contract cancellation fee. Just a thought.

    With five more quarter before the end of 2008, they'd be closer to 7 million at the current pace. But that doesn't account for the international launches that are just around the corner. Their potential market is about to get significantly bigger, and the sales numbers will certainly reflect that going forward.

    We also only had less than a month at the lower price point, and perhaps even lower-priced models are in the pipeline as well.

    Edit: Or just read dynamicv's post.

    Are you kidding? Remember what happened when they cut iPhone prices? People pissed and moaned and got their apple credit.... think what this would cause.

    "The Jones's just bought a macbook pro for $400 less than we did! Oh noes!"
