• 11.8 million iPads – 151% growth over last year
• 4 million Macs – 7% growth over last year (Retails stores sold 826,000 Macs – half to new Mac users)
• 7.7 million iPods – 15 percent decline compared to last year
• iPod touch sales amounted for more than half of all iPods sold
• iTunes now offers 28 million songs, 45,000 movies
• In education, iPad to Mac sales ration was two iPads for every Mac
• There are 125 million iCloud users – no indication that many are paying for additional storage
