Apple Q4 call details
Apple has published details and a reminder of its fourth-quarter results announcement, still scheduled for Tuesday, October 21st. The conference call will begin at 2PM Pacific time (5PM Eastern), and while only investors, analysts and/or members of the press will be able to dial in directly, a live stream will be open to the public through a special Apple website. Listening in will require a minimum of QuickTime 6. For phone callers, rebroadcasts will be available on a separate phone line beginning at 5PM Pacific (8PM Eastern), with the last one starting at the same time on November 4th.
Results from the quarter may be highly anticipated, as they are Apple's first since the US entered into the current credit crisis, and also the first to account for the iPhone 3G. They should also reflect the benefits of the fall school shopping season, which is thought to have spurred public Mac sales with the aid of free iPod touches and nanos. Apple claims to hold 39 percent of the educational notebook market.
