Apple posted record revenue of $15.7 billion and net quarterly profit of $3.25 billion for the Q3 2010 period.
These results compare to revenue of $9.73 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.83 billion a year ago.

Apple sold 3.47 million Macs during the quarter, representing a new quarterly record and a 33% unit increase over the year-ago quarter.
The Company sold 8.4 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 61% unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 9.41 million iPods during the quarter, representing an 8% unit decline from the year-ago quarter. Apple began selling iPads during the quarter, with total sales of 3.27 million.

Apple is thriving and out of nothing created a new product category with the iPad that is challenging their overall Mac sales. The only Apple device that is not breaking records is the iPod. The sales declined by 8%, but still apple sold close to 10 million iPods. Other MP3 player companies would kill for these sales numbers.

Apple will start giving away free iPhone 4 Bumpers this week. Having generated over $4 billion of cash during the quarter, Apple can easily afford to do that.
