"Apple® today announced financial results for its fiscal 2010 third quarter ended June 26, 2010. The Company posted record revenue of $15.7 billion and net quarterly profit of $3.25 billion, or $3.51 per diluted share."

Pretty good quarter for Apple, and the stock reacted by jumping up about $8.00 USD [link]. The company as a whole had revenue of $15.7 billion USD with a profit during Q3 2010 of #3.25 billion USD. Quite the jump from Q3 2009 when the revenue was $9.73 billion USD and the profit was $1.83 billion USD. International sales were 52 percent of the revenue total, compared to 44% in Q3 2009 [link]. The retail stores results were impressive as well posting a record 60.9 million visitors, up over 20% from the previous record [link].

This should help them pay for the cost of the free cases, expected to cost in the neighborhood of $175 million USD [link].

"Apple will be hosting its third quarter earnings conference call at 5PM eastern time today, and The Mac Observer will be covering the event as it happens. Along with our live coverage at the TMO Web site, we'll offer real time updates through Twitter at MacObserverLive, too."

The live coverage is located here, and if you have Twitter account, you can go here and follow along. The conference call starts in just a 60 minutes at 3pm at 5pm Eastern. This should be interesting as this is the first reporting quarter with iPads included.

A New King of the Hill

"Apple has officially dethroned Nokia as the world's most profitable mobile phone maker in this year's third fiscal quarter, according to a report from Strategy Analytics."

Not to be confused with this King of the Hill, but Apple has bested Nokia and is now king of the profit hill when it comes to mobile phones, at least in the 3rd quarter of this year. According to the report, Apple's operating profit for the iPhone handset division was at $1.6 billion versus Nokia's $1.1 billion for the same 3rd quarter of 2009. Not bad for only being in the market for two years.
