iPods sales top 174 million, 13 million iPhones sold

According to sales numbers provided by Apple in its quarterly results releases, the company has now sold more than 174 million iPods, and more than 13 million iPhones. “iPhone had a breakout quarter. Nearly 6.9 million sold, exceeding the 6.1 million shipped during entire lifetime of first-gen iPhone,” said Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer, speaking during the company’s quarterly results conference call. Oppenheimer added that Apple has already surpassed its goal of 10 million iPhones sold in 2008. The iPhone accounted for $806 million in recognized revenue in the fourth quarter, while Apple increased the number of countries in which the iPhone is sold from 6 to 51. It expects to be in over 70 countries by end of December quarter, with over 30,000 points of distribution around the world.

Discussing its music products and services, Apple noted that the iPod’s marketshare is over 70% in month of September, while it continues to gain share year-over-year in most international markets, including the UK, France, Germany, Japan, and Australia. Customers are “loving” the new fastest way to purchase an iPhone - starting with web at home, it takes only 1 minute more than buying an iPod when you get to the store. The iTunes Store now has 65 million customer accounts, and offers more than 8.5 million titles.
