Another quarter, another record set of earnings for Apple.

Here's what we have:

  • Revenue of $7.46 billion (compare to $5.41 billion for year-ago quarter)
  • Profits of $1.07 billion (compare to $818 million for year-ago quarter)
  • Gross margin was 34.8 percent, down from 36.9 percent in the year-ago quarter.
  • International sales accounted for 42 percent of the quarter’s revenue.
  • 2,496,000 Macs sold (41% unit growth and 43% revenue growth on year-ago quarter)
  • 11,011,000 iPods sold (12% unit growth and 7% revenue growth on year-ago quarter)
  • 717,000 iPhones sold (compared to 270,000 in the year-ago-quarter - I expected this number to be down given that the first-gen iPhone had been sold out for much of the quarter)
