Q1 2011 projection

Revenue - $27,800,000,000
EPS - $6.61
iPhone unit sales - 18,350,000
iPod unit sales - 18,900,000
Mac unit sales - 4,468,000
iPad unit sales - 7,250,000
Gross margin percentage - 38.5%

What a quarter for Apple! How long will this go on? I'm saying Apple will surpass 100 billion in FY 2011. That's 10 billion more than my earlier post. I say this because I believe the iPad is going to explode even more than what I earlier stated. RIMM's tablet won't compete, but Android will, Windows eventually might, but will be very late to the party..

Also - with Verizon (unsubstantiated) going all in with the iPhone, it will propel Apple's revenue over the 100 billion mark.. See you on the 18th of January.

    I'm also forecasting Apple's revenue will exceed $100 billion this fiscal year. I maintain a slightly conservative bias in my current forecasts and already have a revenue estimate exceeding $105 billion for the fiscal year.

    I expect to move my fiscal year revenue forecast a bit north following the release of Apple's December quarter numbers on Tuesday.
