New From Apple: The iPrintMoney

jobsingotphone.jpgIf there’s been a slowdown in U.S. consumer spending, nobody told Apple. This afternoon, the company reported second-quarter revenue of $7.5 billion on net income of $1.1 billion, or $1.16 per diluted share, pretty much blowing the doors off Wall Street expectations.

Apple (AAPL) shipped 2,289,000 Macs (up 51%), 10,644,000 iPods (up 1%) and 1,703,000 iPhones during the quarter.

“We’re delighted to report … the strongest March quarter revenue and earnings in Apple’s history,” said CEO Steve Jobs, recycling the soundbyte CFO Peter Oppenheimer used to describe the company’s 2007 March quarter.

Clearly, business is good in Cupertino. That said, Apple says it expects fiscal third-quarter earnings of $1 a share on revenue of $7.2 billion–a bit below analyst expectations. And the Street, which by now should be familiar with Apple’s under-promise-and-over-deliver earnings highjinks, isn’t at all happy with that forecast. The company’s shares slipped a bit in after-hours trading.
