And about the hype that you are talking about. It's been 3 yrs now since the iphone came out, if the iphone is just a hyped up product, there would be a decrease, not an increases on sales. The iphone's strength is its OS more than anything else. Then of course it's App Store, web browser, and excellent music player. It's camera is decent, so of course you like to pick on that and that is all that you see because you are nothing but a hater :)

Apple sold 6 milion Iphones in Q3 2008, how the hell is these an 624% increase ? Since when the f*ck is 5 milion more than 6 milion ?
LOL! They could sell ice to eskimo's!
But instead they sell low tech phones with a laughable price tag, hence the profits.

Last time I check the market for as computer sales, Dell is destroying Apple, not even a contest. Only here in America do we see things so one sided. Apple made a pretty good phone not the best in the world and they usually compare phones that are associated with carriers and not unlock version, so therefore you never have a real competitive competition to determine the best phone on the market. Nokia sales are quite horrible here in the states as well as Sony Erricsson unlock high end phones and a few others. But I don't blame these companies for not allowing their best phones to be listed underneath carriers here in the states, look how AT&T destroyed the HTC phone by dumping all their software on the phone. All I'm saying is:the ratings is not fair and more one sided
I agree with David, apple people are just using data to fool around, please look at the fact.
but I have to say "getting self-hype" or "self natural high" are always the image for the apple geeks.
calm down, there's not only apple in the world, look around and you will have a better life.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2009most truthful commentYeah thanks, i know, it's ridiculous to compare Apple whole productline and app sales to others brands who are just showing sales from handset division.
Appstore made alot of money, and people are downloading songs, games and media, but why is it represented here? Maybe Sony (ericsson) should include how many albums and singels Sony Recording artists sells and how many games Playstation games sells as well here on GSMArena.

when apple manage to sell at least 100 million iphones in 1 year then come and talk again
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2009Oh yeah, you know that the image quality is actually pretty good on the 3 MP camera. It's just... morewhat the image is pretty good ? is the worst 3mp camera i have ever seen it has so much noise that not even a 1 megapixel camera has. of course the more megapixels the better, it captures more detail at higher resolution so go play tap tap on your iphone you noob
[deleted post]Oh yeah, you know that the image quality is actually pretty good on the 3 MP camera. It's just that you think that the higher the megapixel, the higher the image quality. Also, you know the selling rate is 1 million units:1 month of the year, so theirs nothing bad about the iPhone. THINK BEFORE YOU WRITE.
5 million cookies old*
it should only include their smart phone profit and not the entire product line. 5 million phones sold in months is not bad but is not good either consider the all the hype. they are far behind compared to other phone makers
i dont know the reason why people hate i phone....the thing is every phone company made an iphone killer a thousand times....and every anti-apple person always said the same thing abut how i phone is getting kicked!!! and see the result...who!s the king and who is a piece of crap still shouting for years!!!! who cares abut LG sale !! LG phones are like DEll !! nth special is juz cheap and cheap...4 !!!technology is all abut innovation...!
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 buliders 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 othre brands included all their departments, Apple would be last on the list.
i dont know why people in here hate apple so much, do u own a mac? an ipod? have u ever been in a apple store? their products are incredible, if u hate it just becus their iphone, u are a dbag.
[deleted post]i dont see why people buying quality products are sheeps and dumb.
Apple just published the financial results for the second quarter of the year and things could hardly be healthier there. The company is obviously unaware of a certain little thingy called world economic crisis and has recorded their best non-holiday quarter revenue and earnings ever.
The Company has generated a revenue of 8.34 billion US dollars and a net quarterly profit of 1.23 billion US dollars, which compare favorably to the numbers for the previous quarter - 7.46 billion and $1.07 billion respectively. The gross profit margin has increased to 36.3 percent, compared to 34.8 percent for the same period last year.
The nice position that the guys over at Cupertino find themselves in is in no small part due to the great sales that the iPhone makes. 5.2 million samples of the Apple mobile phones have flown off the shelves over the past three months, representing 626 percent growth over the year-ago quarter. The contribution of the App store, from which users have already downloaded more than 1.5 billion Apps is also recognized.
Finally Apple announced that it managed to move 2.6 million Macs (4 percent increase YoY) and 10.2 million iPods (7 percent decline) for the second quarter of the 2009.
I don't like Apple, but their products are performing very well. The Iphone are riding a wave not unlike the V3 Razr did once.
It will end, though I don't think too soon.
