iPod sales flat
Apple's iPod sales were relatively flat year-over-year, showing 5 percent unit shipment growth but significant 17 percent revenue growth in the fiscal first quarter. 22,121,000 iPods representing $3,997,000,000 were sold in the quarter, compared to 21,066,000 units representing $3,427,000,000 in the year-ago-quarter. The higher revenue is likely due to a richer product mix caused by the sale of more iPod nanos and iPod Touch units and less iPod Shuffles. Other music related services generated $808 million in revenue vs. $601 million in the year-ago quarter. Meanwhile, 2,315,000 iPhones were sold in the quarter, representing $241 million in revenue -- a 107 percent sequential increase in units compared to the the fiscal fourth quarter of 2007.
Software, Service and Other Sales represented $628 million in the quarter, up a whopping 81 percent from the year-ago period, thanks in large part to stunning Leopard sales. Peripherals and other hardware sales represented $382 million, a 29% increase from the year-ago quarter.
