Apple on Tuesday announced record June-quarter iPhone sales
The company said it sold 31.2 million iPhones for the quarter ended June 30, up from 26 million for the same quarter a year ago.
If you want to make a comparison to, say, the leading dedicated games handheld Nintendo 3DS, that has sold 31 million worldwide through March this year, since its launch in 2011. (Of course, the 3DS is a dedicated handheld game console, not a multifunctional game-capable smartphone -- but it's worth the sidenote.)
Apple posted quarterly revenue of $35.3 billion (up slightly $35 billion for the comparable quarter a year ago), and quarterly net profit of $6.9 billion (down from $8.8 billion a year ago).
