Yesterday Apple did their Q2 2011 earnings call. Some of the numbers and quotes that caught my attention during the call included:
— 4.7 million iPads were sold during the quarter. This is below a lot of analysts’ estimates, but still an impressive number given that the quarter ended in March, with stocks of the original iPad being wound down and the iPad 2 only on sale for about two weeks. Tim Cook (Apple’s COO) said demand for the iPad 2 has been ‘staggering’.
— There were 3.76 million Macs sold in the quarter. So the iPad is outselling Macs by a significant distance.
— CIOs continue to embrace the iPad. 75% of Fortune 500 companies are testing or deploying iPads.
One thing I didn’t hear was any iPad 2 specific numbers at all. That was disappointing. I was hoping they would mention how many were sold over the first weekend, or by the end of March, or something. Hopefully we’ll hear some of those sort of numbers soon.
