10 million iPod nanos

Apple may produce and sell more than during the three month period ending in December, says UBS Investment Research. For Apple's quarter ending in June -- the last fiscal quarter in which it has released results -- the company sold a combined total of 6,155,000 iPods, which is the most iPods its ever shipped in a single quarter, according to AppleInsider. UBS had been modeling Apple to sell 8.3 million total iPods in the December quarter, but recently met with industry sources in Asia who said those estimates may prove to be conservative. The firm's sources indicate iPod nano build orders for the quarter could exceed 10 million units. Apple's other iPod models would only add to this figure. "In short, our meetings were very positive for Apple into year-end and next, in terms of potential new iPods and possible build plans," said analyst Ben Reitzes in a research note released to clients on Monday.

    No, no, the Nano is a flop, remember? Last week we were told it was poised to be the next Cube, if memory serves.

    Funny how many confident-sounding predictions have been made in less than a month of release, isn't it?

    Oh, memories.

    That was awesome when people published reports on the nano's flopping based on calls to 2 Apple Stores.
