The Cupertino-based giant today blew away all expectations, announcing a record $40 billion Q1 of 2012. Tim Cook emailed all staff at Apple, congratulating them for their hard work and promisng more great things. The Next Web got the email;
Thanks to everyone’s hard work, we’re off to a great start in 2012. Last week in New York we launched a groundbreaking initiative for education with iBooks textbooks, and today we reported the strongest quarter in Apple’s history. Please join me tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. in Town Hall. We’ll review our record-setting results and discuss some exciting new things going on at Apple. The meeting will be broadcast live to many sites in Cupertino and other Apple locations. Please check Apple Web for details.
Apples proud of their achievement, and most of us are still blown away. In after hours trading, $AAPL has even broken the 450 point mark.
Its easy to let the mind run with what great new things Cook could be talking about, but its unlikely well hear anything in the form of leaks at this stage. Perhaps its that iPhone nano we all want so bad? Only time will tell.
