Updated: Apple ships 336,000 iPods, still no. 1 MP3 player

MacMinute has posted highlights from today’s Apple Q4 financial conference call with industry analysts and the press. iPod highlights included: Apple made $121 million in profit from the 336,000 shipped iPods. The iPod is still the no. 1 MP3 player on the market. Apple is expanding its worldwide iPod sales with 8,000 resellers before Christmas.

Today Apple posted its 4th quarter results and it’s noted that 336 thousand iPod units were shipped, up 140 percent from the year-ago quarter. Apple posted a net profit of $44 million and revenues for the quarter were $1.715 billion, up 19 percent from the year-ago quarter.

“‘It was a great new product quarter for Apple,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We launched the Power Mac G5, the fastest personal computer in the world, new PowerBooks and new iPods. Plus, we’re delivering Panther, the next major release of Mac OS X, later this month and we’ll have some exciting news regarding our music efforts tomorrow.’”

They also said: “For the quarter, Apple posted a net profit of $44 million”

Don’t get too angered ;)

I don’t think that the entire $44 million in profit was due to the iPod.  I think it can probably be attributed to a number of products.  So the $360.12 figure probably isn’t accurate.

I think they could get by with dropping the price a little bit…
