The Apple trend, which is engaged in iPhone has earned more than Microsoft. The analysts come to these decisions while comparing the accountable figures of the first quarter of both companies.
iPhone allowed Apple to earn $24.4 billion during the last quarter, while Microsoft in full completion “went round carol-singing” only $20.9 billion during the same period. The Microsoft’s income takes into account the Xbox, Windows, Microsoft Office and Windows Phone sales proceeds.
With the assumption that the Microsoft has breasted the tape with a five-percent results’ improvement, they can’t be compared with the Apple results. 37.04 million sold iPhone and 15.43 million sold iPad, doubled the last year’s numbers for guys from Cupertino.
Apple capacity of the capitalization has caught up the Microsoft yet in 2010, pressed the challenger from the leading position in the IT-sphere, which it kept since 1989. And in August, 2011 Apple pulled the championship from the oil major Exxon out, and became the most valuable company of the world.
Five years ago, there was no iPhone, and today it is incredibly expensive and profitable brand, that managed to exceed Apple quindecennial remoteness popularity. People are suing with this brand, try to destroy it with the patents and prohibitions, but it develops and spreads over the planet with the hitherto inconceivable rates.
