Apple shares were halted after Apple revealed a HUGE quarterly revenue in a conference call on Monday. This is apparently all over the new touchscreen tablet gadget that Apple will reveal on Wednesday, January 27.
How well did they do in the last quarter of 2009? Profits are up 50% over record sales of 3.36 million Macs and 8.7 million iPhones. They reached a record sale of $15.68 billion! They basically blew out their forecasts. [CNBC]
Oh and according to this Google search trend, the Apple Tablet has become a bigger story than President Obama's State of the Union Speech. [Gawker]
