The financial report for Apple's Q3 of the year revealed that the company has had amazing success as of lately. The company recorded their best non-holiday quarter revenue and profit in their history, easily outperforming the unfavorable market tendencies.
The Cupertino-based company revenue totaled 9.87 billion US dollars this quarter and they recorder record net quarterly profit of 1.67 billion US dollars, which is an improvement of 24.9% and 46.5% over the respective numbers in Q3 last year.
The number of iPhones sold in the quarter rose 7 percent compared to last year to reach a total of 7.4 million units. That gives the company a market share of more than 2.1 percent and considering that it's only high-end handsets we are talking here, that's surely quite a lot.
Macintosh computers sales also fared extremely well with the company shipping 3.05 million (17 percent increase YoY). The iPods are the only Apple products that are overachieving during the quarter, with the 10.2 million units sold representing an 8% volume decline from the year-ago quarter.
So to sum it all up, even before the start of the holiday season, Apple have pushed record breaking volumes of Macs and iPhones. And again, their profit per unit (or operating margin) is much higher than the one of any other cellphone manufacturer out there. Some phenomena defy all logic and reason.

Haha. It's funny how iPhone haters can't spell and say irrelevant things while iPhone users actually make sense. BTW the iPhone is less expensive than an N97, and the N97 jas a resistive touchscreen, a CPU that's half as powerful, a horribly bad OS...
