Apple's Q3 2008 Financial Results on July 21st

Apple will be webcasting their 3rd Quarter 2008 Financial Results on July 21, 2008. The 3rd fiscal quarter encompasses sales between April 1, 2008 and June 30, 2008. As such, results from the iPhone 3G and App Store sales will not be included in the earnings report.

Recent reports however, have suggested that Apple's U.S. personal computer marketshare continues to increase substantially with 30-40% gains year-over-year.

While the iPhone 3G has been well received, most reviewers appear most impressed with the App Store and the variety of applications that are available. As David Pogue describes:

The App Storeoh, man, the App Store. Its a candy store, dude. Its 550 free or cheap add-on programs that make the iPhone (or the iPod Touch) do absolutely amazing thingsstunts a cellphone has no right to perform.

Impressive apps such as Pandora Radio, BeatMaker, a VNC client and a Role Playing Game have certainly raised the bar for future apps.
