Apple Planning To Webcast Second-Quarter Earnings Call Tuesday
Apple is planning on webcasting its second-quarter earnings call at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT next Tuesday. The call will cover the company's sales for the first three months of the year. Anyone interested in listening can visit this link on Tuesday. Streaming audio requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 4.2 or above, any Mac running OS X 10.5 or above, or any PC running QuickTime 7 or later. During the call, Apple will go over iPhone and iPad sales for the quarter. We know that Apple had a monster first weekend last month when the new iPad was released, and it'll be interesting to see how many more tablets were sold past the opening 3 million. On the iPhone side, the situation is a little more cloudy. After selling a record 37 million iPhones in the previous quarter, analysts are predicting anywhere from 26 to 44 million iPhones sold during the first three months of the year. Interestingly, Verizon announced recently that its iPhone sales were down 24 percent as customers seem to be gravitating to LTE-enabled phones. Apple's next iPhone is expected to contain the high-speed networking standard, but it is looking more and more like it won't be released until sometime this fall. Apple's stock has also hit a rough patch. After recording an all-time high of $644 earlier this month, the shares are trading at around $577 on the NASDAQ today. We'll keep you posted on what Apple has to say. (Via iDownloadBlog)
