Apple reports record numbers for the quarter

During its scheduled quarterly earnings call, yesterday, Apple executives reported record numbers for revenue and profits.  Revenue for the quarter was $24.67 billion while profits came in at $5.99 billion, a growth of 85% over the year ago quarter.

These numbers are the result of exceptionally high iPhone sales, with over 18 million iPhones sold in the quarter and a much smaller number of iPads sold than almost everyone was expecting.  Apple reported sales of only 4.69 million iPads in the quarter.  This number seems to be directly related to a constraint in production of the new iPad 2,  rather than to lack of demand as anyone who’s tried to get one recently can probably attest.

Demand for iPad 2 seems to continue to be very high with Apple selling just about any they can manufacture.
