Apple ships 8.1 million iPods in Q3; Jobs ‘excited’ about future iPod products

Along with its quarterly financial results, Apple today announced that it shipped over 8.1 million iPods during the third quarter. Specifically, Apple said it shipped 8,111,000 iPods during the quarter, a 32 percent growth in iPods over last year’s results. Apple’s net profit for the quarter was $472 million, or 54 cents per share, on $4.37 billion in revenue. These results compare to revenue of $3.52 billion and a net profit of $320 million, or 37 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter.

Following the financial results, Apple CEO Steve Jobs said in a statement that he is very excited about upcoming iPod releases. “The iPod continued to earn a US market share of over 75 percent and we are extremely excited about future iPod products in our pipeline,” Jobs said.

Update: In an SEC filing, Apple said all iPod models accounted for more than $1.4 billion in revenue during the quarter, an increase of 36 percent compared to last year. Apple’s “Other Music Products” category—which includes the iTunes Music Store, iPod related services and accessories—accounted for $457 million of the quarter’s revenue, a 90 percent increase year-over-year.
