Another Monster Quarter for Apple

Check out Business Insider for the liveblog of the earnings call from Cupertino, but here are the vital stats:

evenue: $28.57 billion vs. $24.72 billion Street consensus ($26.69 billion “amateur” consensus, $26.72 billion “real” expectations (based on prior performance vs. guidance))
EPS: $7.79 vs. $5.71 Street consensus ($6.72 “amateur” consensus, $7.09 “real” expectations (probably too high)

iPhone shipments: 20.3 million vs. 16.5 million Street consensus (via Piper Jaffray), 17.85 million “amateur” consensus

iPad shipments: 9.25 million vs. 7.8 million Street consensus (via Piper Jaffray), 8.4 million “amateur” consensus

Mac shipments: 3.95 million vs. 4.2 million Street consensus (via Piper Jaffray), 4.3 million “amateur” consensus

iPod shipments 7.54 million vs. 8.4 million Street consensus (via Piper Jaffray), 8.4 million “amateur” consensus

Of course, iPod sales were really much higher, when you consider that every iPhone and iPad is an iPod, too. That’s the kind of cannibalization any company would be willing to endure.

UPDATE: Revenues are up 82 percent and profits up 125 percent, from this quarter last year. That’s unheard-of for a company Apple’s size.

ANOTHER UPDATE: 20 million iPhones last quarter, about four million iPod touches, and nearly ten million iPads. That’s 34 million iOS devices in one quarter. Developers are, I’m sure taking notice of that big-ass number.

Also, OS X Lion is coming out tomorrow. I’m just not sure when to upgrade, since I know I’m really going to miss Spaces and Exposé. Mission Control looks very slick — but maybe not as much in tune with the way I work.
