Cook: "I'm glad that people want the next thing, I'm super happy about it. I'm not going to put any energy into getting people to stop speculating."

Cook and Oppenheimer have mentioned that sales and ASPs have been affected by "new product rumors" and the strong US dollar.

Apple TV sales have surpassed 4 million units for the year, 1.3 million for the quarter.

iPad 2 sales still remained strong, particularly in K-12, with approximately 1 million units for the quarter.

Cook declines to provide details about subsidization talks with carriers, though he notes that the company will maintain its focus on making the best smartphone in the world. Carriers are expected to be receptive.

Mac sales were said to be slow before WWDC, but surged after the conference. MacBook Pro with Retina display was "incredibly well received."

iPhone global sales: strong in US and Japan, even stronger in China, however flat sales in Europe affected overall performance.
