Analyst David Nelson in a widely-circulated blog post on November 15:
This is still a great company and should continue to innovate for years but it is NOT and WILL NOT be the hyper growth company of years gone by
Can’t spell “analyst” without the location from where they pull these predictions.
The Company sold 37.04 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 128 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.43 million iPads during the quarter, a 111 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 5.2 million Macs during the quarter, a 26 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.4 million iPods, a 21 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter.
The iPod decline is predictable, and the Mac sales are great, but digest that iPhone figure again. 37 million iPhones. Insane. The iPad sales are equally enormous. Both sold over double what they did the year prior.
