From the earnings call:
iPad sales record in Japan, all-time record in China.
iPad in PRC, had its best quarter ever, higher than all others and also grew in market that contracted for overall market.
According the chart below [click link above], made by BI Intelligence, Apple sold 12.62 million iPads last quarter, down 23% year-over-year, which translates to roughly $5.43 billion in sales. That’s lower than the $5.6 billion the Mac brought in last quarter, marking the first time Mac revenue surpassed iPad revenue.
The iPad sales growth has been in steady decline over the past few years. Year-over-year sales have declined in each of the last 8 quarters.
Strange time for tablets. But Apple clearly crushed all the “cottage” tablet makers in China. What people outside of China see as a bargain, inside China they consider trash.
