Apple announced its results for the fiscal 2007 fourth quarter and they pretty much blew the doors off all expectations. Revenue reached US$6.22 billion and profits shot up about 67 percent to US$904 million (compared to US4.84 billion revenues and US$542 million revenues in the same quarter a year ago).
Sales of Apple Macinotsh computers, iPods and iPhones all remained extremely popular. Apple shipped over 2 million Macintosh computers (another record), 10.2 million iPods and over 1.1 million iPhones in the quarter. During the analyst call, Apple also reported that as many as 250,000 iPhones might have been purchased by customers who intended to unlock them.
Apple predicts that the next quarter will also be strong. iPod demand should remain strong through the holidays and the iPhone is about to go on sale in the UK, Germany and France.
