Yesterday Apple announced their quarterly earnings, and also announced the sales figures for the range of devices they sell. One of the figures which is quite interesting is the sales of the new Apple TV.
Apple have sold a total of 250,000 Apple’s TVs since it went on sale just over 18 days ago, not bad for something that Steve Jobs calls a hobby.
The sales are nowhere near that of the iPad or iPhone 4 from when they went on sale, although they are slightly higher than many people expected. The lower priced Apple TV, which now costs just $99 in the US and £99 here in the UK is now more attractive because of the lower price point.
Apple could end up making the Apple TV a popular product if they enable the ability to run applications on it and add in a couple features like a web browser.
