I'll explain it to you anyway. 878 million dollars is not LG's quarterly profit, 878 million dollars is the profitmargin LG have made more then last year at the same time, hence the percentage comparison inte text.
Does it make any sense you that LG made 11,229 billion dollars and the quarterly profit is 878 million dollars? You do know there are 4 quarters in year right? 878 million dollar is what they made this year on top of last years annual income.
Come on mate, read it next time.
Does Apple include mac and pod in that Q2 results?

The Company has generated a revenue of 8.34 billion US dollars and a net quarterly profit of 1.23 billion US dollars.
Sales on a global basis went up 13.8 percent compared to the same period of last year to reach 11.229 billion US dollars. The operating profit jumped to 878 million US dollars resulting in a margin of 7.8 percent, 1.1 percent higher than the previous year.
Now perhaps you have reading and comprehension difficulties but 1.23 billion US dollars (Apple) is more than 878 million US dollars (LG).

Apple as primarily a software company understood this and released the iPhone which is greater than the subtotal of it's parts in delivering a USER EXPERIENCE which is unmatched so far in other devices.
This is the reason for it's success, this is what other companies are trying so hard to duplicate so far rather unsuccessfully.

If the iPod touch had a camera maybe the percentage could be higher

Apple reported over a 600% increase in profits from iPhones vs the same quarter last year whereas Nokia reported a 71% decrease for the corresponding quarters.
Apple is doing very well in spite of all the supposedly essential features the iPhone lacks.

LG has shipped about 30 million handsets in the last 3 months cause of the high demands on some their models.
Like i said, if the other companies added all their divisions profits in the report like Apple Inc do, then Apple Inc would be last on that list.
Samsung Electronics as a company made like 24 billion dollars in Q1.
It's verry silly of Apple to compare Apple Inc profits to the other handset division instead of just the iPhones.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2009Why do people get so upset that Apple makes more profit than another company? Do you own SE, S... moreOnce again, Apple is making profit, yes, but so are the other companies.
I wrote this before:
Well the thing here is Apples profit are not supposed to be included here on GSMarena, only the iPhone profit should. Apples profit on Macs, iPods and other things are not relevant.
If you see it that way then Sony, Samsung and LG might as well add their profitmargin from the whole company as well, Flat screen Tv's, Laptops, Bluray, DvD, MP3/MP4 players or whatever Samsung and LG sells.
And Ericsson should add their profit from being the worlds biggest developers and builders of mobile and data networks as well.
And Nokia should add their profit from Security Solution, Military Communication, TETRA, GPS products, Digital Telivision, ADSL and WLAN, Telephone Switches and even Tires for cars and race vehicles.
This is nonsense, how many laptops, iPods and accesories Apple sells has nothing to do with the profitmargin here on GSMarena, the other brands are just showing the result for their mobile phones.
If the other brands included all their departments, Apple would be last on the list.

The App store probably doesn't make Apple much money, they have some serious data centers behind it and they cost a lot to build and run.

The AppStore is nothing BUT 3rd party apps!
You need a reality check!
What people fail to understand about the iPhone is that it's not just a list of features that defines a phone but how those features come together to enhance the user experience.
Apple nailed it and are reaping the rewards with 10 million sales in the last six months (Last two quarters added together).
Now, some may think that iPhone users are "stupid" or "sheep" because everything is set up in a way which makes everything easy but I think it's stupid to spend hours messing around with settings to get things to a useable state as you do with some other phones.
Why do people get so upset that Apple makes more profit than another company? Do you own SE, Samsung, LG or Nokia? No, you wish you did and you would probably own Apple to if they asked you to.
As for the reasons why Apple are making such profits, it's because they make good products. The 3GS is extremely advanced compared to most phones and really is a vast improvement on the 3G and in my opinion the iPhone is still currently the number one phone, buy one and you'll understand, I've owned them all. Second MAC computers are far superior to anything windows offers, it's a far more stable operating system and they are all sold with the minimum specs any person should get in the modern world and with increasing numbers of compatable software it's becoming a solution or businesses and personal users.
Don't like it when people can't see why Apple products are the way they are priced, it's simple, they are honestly better. Just try a mac computer or an iPhone and it's simple to see why people have such a loyal following. Marketing can create hype, but it's the user experience after that, that is keeping Apple going.
The way they are cheating ppl out of their money is just sad, for what's offered on the iPhone it should be way cheaper, AT&T pricing look so perfect at first glance so they buy the phone not considering the monthly bills they can't really afford afterword. But then again thats how we got in a crisis anyway and it seem ppl just want to keep spending untill the iPhone is all they have left. Ppl listen to reason and stop, the iPhone needs to up their tech before it's worth what it costs, without 3rd party apps the phone is a complete failure with their wak app store....and if anyone wants to argue and say I don't know about iPhones I have one, so I know, and it's hacked :p

went in their once and it's so boring
no one buys anything LOL
cause it's too expensive
and everything looks the same there is no options
or difference in products
macbook and macbook pro look excactlly the same
same with the ipods and iphones and itouch
the only thing that is different is the G5 desktop
LACK OR CREATIVITY
Obviously since they are looting everyone with their super-expensive iphones they are bound to get huge profits.
