With operating profits in the third quarter of $1.6 billion (estimated by Strategy Analytics), they made more money by Nokia with $1.1 billion.
Apple sold 7.4 million iPhones during the third quarter (July-September), generating sales of $4.5 billion. In comparission, Nokia sold 108.5 million phones in total in the same quarter, generating sales of $10.36 billion.
This doesn’t come as a surprise to me, because the iPhone is quite a lot more expensive than the average Nokia cellphone. Nokia does not only sell a high-end phone, like Apple does with the iPhone, they also sell millions of really low-end phones to markets such as Africa etc.
Speaking of iPhones, you might wanna subscribe to my RSS feed or follow me on Twitter to stay updated, as next week is going to be awesome, here on TechPatio. Not only am I getting my first DSLR camera, ever, I’m also giving up on my beloved iPhone for a whole week.
That’s right. I’m doing an experiment: Replacing my iPhone for 5 days with an HTC Tattoo running the Android operating system.
So, subscribe and stay in touch. You’ll never know what happens when an Apple “fanboi” like yours truly, doesn’t get to play with his iPhone…
