iPhone dwarfs other Apple businesses

In addition to posting general Q2 results, Apple has also released a more detailed breakdown (PDF) of its latest finances. Of special note may be the company's iPhone revenue, which has grown 124 percent year-over-year to hit $5.445 billion. This now easily exceeds the money from any of Apple's other businesses, even combined Mac figures.

Likewise unusual is that while notebook revenue is up only 17 percent for the quarter at $2.228 billion, desktops have grown 45 percent to sit at $1.532 billion. Desktops are typically less important to Apple than notebooks, but are likely to have been spurred in the March quarter by the introduction of Core i5 and i7 iMacs in late 2009.

iPod sales have declined 1 percent in terms of units, reflecting the falling importance of the platform next to the iPhone. At the same time, the drop is not as harsh as some analysts were predicting, and revenue is still up 12 percent at $1.861 billion. Peripheral revenue has climbed 32 percent to $472 million, while music-related revenue is up 27 percent to $1.327 billion, and software and service has advanced just 1 percent to $634 million.

Regionally Apple has pushed Americas revenue up 26 percent to $4.993 billion. The European market may be closing ranks, however, as it is up 63 percent at $4.050 billion. The most rapid growth is attributed to the Asia Pacific market, which has leapt ahead 184 percent to $1.886 billion; among other things, the figure may be linked to new iPhone carriers. Japanese revenue has risen 51 percent to $887 million.

Money from Apple Stores worldwide, lastly, has increased 22 percent to $1.683 billion.

    I bought AAPL @ around $10/share in 2001. It closed at $245 today and is likely to bump higher when the markets open tomorrow.

    If it goes up $20 tomorrow (it did briefly in after-hours), yeah I will break out a bottle of champagne.
