Apple’s slow but steady takeover of mobile computing continues
- 5.3M iPods were sold by Apple during their fourth fiscal quarter of 2012, according to the company’s most recent earnings call.
- 14M iPads were sold during the same period of time, though both the iPod and iPad product lines undersold analysts’ expectations. Yes, apparently, only selling 20 million devices is disappointing to some folks.
- 26.9M iPhones were also sold during the company’s fourth quarter, underperforming yet again; however, we suspect the imminent release of the iPhone 5 may have played a significant role in dwindling numbers. source
