Points and Numbers from Q3 2010 Conference Call

Following yesterday’s Q3 2010 profit and revenue news here are some important points and numbers from the conference call.

The following chart shows the revenue from Apple’s major products:

From The Mac Observer:

• Apple’s Mac unit sales increased 33% year over year to 3.47 million units, well ahead of IDC’s numbers for the overall PC market, which grew 22% year-over-year.
• Apple wasn’t specific, but said that both desktop and laptop Mac sales beat the overall market.
• iPod touch sales 48% year over year
• iPod revenue grew 4%, even while unit sales decreased 8%….

From World of Apple:

• Passed 5 billion App downloads.
• Apple will defer $175 million to buy cases which will be recognised upon delivery to customers.
• iPhone 4 demand is unprecedented. Tim Cook: “We are selling every unit we can make currently.”
• $2.17bn made on sales of iPad and accessories. iPad sales alone was about $2.1bn….

From The Apple Blog:

• On the issue of the iPad cannibalizing the Mac, it was suggested instead that a kind of “synergy” could happen. Looking at the iPod, it was “felt the iPod created a halo for the Mac,” as “iPod volumes took off, you see a dramatic change in Mac sales back in time.” And people thought Apple forcing the iPad to be tethered to a computer was a mistake.

From Edible Apple:

• iTunes Store Revenue checked in at $1billion+ during the quarter
• Retail revenue is up 74%
• Cash on hand is an astounding $45.8 billion
• North Carolina data center should be operational by the end of the year
