$20.34 billion, 14.1 million iPhones, 4.19 million iPads, 9.05 million iPods in Q4 2010

Apple has just announced their Q4 2010 earnings, stated at $20.34 billion and including $20.34 billion, 14.1 million iPhones, 4.19 million iPads, 9.05 million.

“We are blown away to report over $20 billion in revenue and over $4 billion in after-tax earnings—both all-time records for Apple,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPhone sales of 14.1 million were up 91 percent year-over-year, handily beating the 12.1 million phones RIM sold in their most recent quarter. We still have a few surprises left for the remainder of this calendar year.”

Those numbers represent a nuclear level boom, even by Apple standards. Now about those surprises...?

Yes, for the calendar year, however for the fiscal (or financial) year, the fourth quarter is July - September.

@Paul companies can set their own fiscal year and it might not follow the calender year. Apple happens to be on the same fiscal schedule as the feds. Some follow the calender year some are different still.

Its amazing how many people love this iphone, though I am starting to see the better side of an ipad, as it helps you read things easily.
