Apple profit beats estimates as iPhone and iPod sales rise


Does anyone else out there really need an Apple (AAPL) iPod? Guess so. Between January and March, 11 million of them were sold.

iPod sales rose three percent over last year's first three months. iPhone sales were up a whopping 123 percent, as the company sold 3.79 million units during In Apple's fiscal second-quarter, which ended March 28. Net income rose 15 percent, even as Macintosh sales fell three percent.

CFO Peter Oppenheimer, during Apple's earnings conference call today, said it was the company's "the best non-holiday quarter" in its history.
