Many Apple fans around the world wouldn't be able to go a day without their beloved iPhone, and it appears that South Korea is no exception. Today KT Corporation, the local carrier of the iPhone in South Korea, announced that there have been one million iPhones sold in only 9 months.
There's no doubt about the success of the Xbox, but Microsoft's latest claim might have some scratching their heads. First it's iPhone "funerals," and now they're making some pretty bold claims about Kinect sales.
No doubt there'll be a lot of smiles on the faces of Apple's Board of Directors today. Why so happy? Well, it seems that the Chinese Government has approved the company's iPhone 4 handset for retail to billions of Chinese citizens.
Man, if you thought it was hard finding an iPhone 4 to buy now, just wait until the handset takes off in the Asian market.
According to Samsung, a recent slowing in computer sales came close to triggering an oversupply in RAM. It didn't quite get there, thanks to phones and servers keeping supply-and-demand stable, but if the slowdown continues the market may still be oversaturated come fall or winter.
For the first time in the history of the iPhone, the sales of our glossy friend have been overturned by Google's OS powered devices. Granted, there are many more Android-powered devices than there are iOS devices on the market, but the new Nielsen Company report makes us wonder about how these devices stack up in terms of sales.
Did you hear? Each and everyone of Apple's offerings print money--or at least you'd think so after listening in on the company's third quarter financial results released this afternoon via Quicktime, phone and as a good-old fashioned PDF earlier this afternoon. Listening in, you just knew it was going to be good news (as if there was ever any doubt,) from the enthusiasm in Peter Oppenheimer's voice as he made a few state of the union comments surrounding Apple's third-quarter, which ended in June, before getting down to the nitty-gritty.
With the news earlier this year that Apple claimed the status of largest technology company in the United States in terms of Market Cap, we couldn't help but wonder how far Apple could really climb. Andy Zaky at Apple Insider, however, went ahead and compiled a story about revenue estimates this year for Apple. What he says Apple has achieved over the past year is absolutely astounding.
1.7 muh-muh-million! That’s how many iPhone 4 handsets that Apple has sold in the three days since its June 24 launch, which is being touted as the company’s “most successful product launch” in Apple’s history.
This current quarter could be Apple's finest moment, according to an analyst that believes Apple could make up to $15 billion, beating other analyst expectations by $1 billion. It seems like Apple is on a roll with iPad sales, iPhone 4 preorders, Mac sales, and the elusive iPod (does anyone remember those things?). These factors, coupled with iTunes sales, could be making Apple a pretty nice cash stockpile.
