We'll be beginning TiPb's live coverage just before 2pm PT/5pm ET, but Apple has already released their results, and they include 7.4 million iPhones sold in Q4 2009.

Apple Inc. is set to announce their Q4 2009 financial results today, and host their usual après-PR conference call at 5pm ET/2pm PT. Analysts are anticipating good news overall, though rumor once again has it demand for the iPhone 3GS is still outstripping supply.

Either way, we should find out how many iPhones have been sold to date, and how large Apple's multitouch mobile platform has grown over the last three months. (We're guessing more than a bit).

TiPb will be providing live coverage of the call, so join us back here at start time.
