Mac up, iPod down.

Apple's Q4 earnings report came out today (WSJ). The company showed an earnings increase of 70%, with iPhone sales almost doubling year-over-year. Total profit? $4.31 billion- up from $2.53 billion in Q4 2009. 43% of Apple revenue came from the US.

iPad sales were expected to top 4.8 million, but they "only" made it up to 4.2 million. This is still a substantial increase from 3.3 million sales in Q3. However, this stall may represent a slow-down of iPad sales due to the first (small) wave of competing slates.

Mac sales rang in at around 3.9 million, a 27% increase from last year. iPod sales were down 11% though, with only 9.1 million sold.
