Apple ships over 21 million iPods during holiday quarter

Along with its quarterly financial results, Apple today announced that it shipped over 21 million iPods during the busy holiday shopping quarter. Specifically, Apple said it shipped 21,066,000 iPods during the quarter, a 28 percent growth in iPods over last year’s results, bringing the total number of shipped iPods to over 90 million. Apple’s net profit for the fiscal first quarter was a record $1.0 billion, or $1.14 cents per share, on $7.1 billion in revenue.

“We are incredibly pleased to report record quarterly revenue of over $7 billion and record earnings of $1 billion,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’ve just kicked off what is going to be a very strong new product year for Apple by launching Apple TV and the revolutionary iPhone.”

WOW, that basically obliterates most analysts’ predictions! So much for all those iPod killers. Considering that I plan to buy probably three new iPods (iPhone, widescreen video iPod, and widescreen nano) in 2007 I’m predicting (probably as accurately as all the other analysts) 1 billion and three new iPod sales in 2007

“EDGE…because it’s much more widespread and widely deployed in the U.S….but obviously we’d be where the technology is”

Phew, that keeps a little chink of light at the end of the tunnel that the UK launch may have 3G, as it seems to be more widespread here. That would be nice wink

Apple has sold over 90 million iPods worldwide. That’s a *huge* number. The United States has only recently crossed the 300 million population mark.

Just the 21 million iPods sold during the holiday quarter represents 7% of the entire U.S. population. (Even though the iPod sales were worldwide, it’s still very impressive.)
