Jobs Teases 'Major New Product' After Apple Record Results

I guess we'll know for sure come tomorrow night, but right now it seems Apple can do no wrong...

In a teasing - yet highly impressive - announcement Apple has revealed its fiscal 2010 first quarter (ended December 26, 2009) to be another record for the company. In short, revenue leapt from 11.88bn in the year ago quarter to a massive $15.68bn with $2.26bn in profits. Mac sales were also up 33 per cent to 3.36m and iPhones a whopping 100 per cent to 8.7m. If ever a trend needed spelling out, however, iPod sales were down eight per cent to 21m though the iPod touch range jumped 55 per cent.

That tease? Jobs official statement: "If you annualize our quarterly revenue, it's surprising that Apple is now a $50+ billion company. The new products we are planning to release this year are very strong, starting this week with a major new product that we're really excited about."

So excited it has scheduled no press events outside of the US, provided no UK streaming of the event for journalists and no live webcast. Then again, we shouldn't be surprised: it did the same for the launch of the first iPhone!

Come on Steve, we're bored. Just kick out the Apple iTablet and be done with it - we're talking new gadget not cancer cure. Tablets are a stupid format anyway...
