Apple's Cook: Selling every iPhone 4 we can make despite antenna flap

Summary:Addressing the question of the day, operating chief Tim Cook said on Apple's earnings conference call that the company is selling every iPhone 4 it can make.

If there's any blowback about the iPhone 4 and its antenna hubbub, Tim Cook sure isn't seeing any of it.

Addressing the question of the day, Cook said on Apple's earnings conference call that the company is selling every iPhone 4 it can make. The iPhone along with the iPad and strong demand for Macs propelled Apple's best quarter ever.

Specifically, "the demand for iPhone 4 is absolutely stunning," said Cook. "We are selling every unit we can make currently."

Analysts questioned Cook's take and asked about whether there was any evidence of an online order slowdown for the iPhone 4 since Friday.

Cook said there has been "no slowdown" in order rates online, or any increase in returns.

"My phone is ringing off the hook from people that need more supply," said Cook.

However, Cook did note that it's early to tell the ultimate impact of antennagate. He said "it's hard to tell since we're selling every one we can make."
