Apple just published the financial results for the second quarter of the year and things could hardly be healthier there. The company is obviously unaware of a certain little thingy called world economic crisis and has recorded their best non-holiday quarter revenue and earnings ever.

The Company has generated a revenue of 8.34 billion US dollars and a net quarterly profit of 1.23 billion US dollars, which compare favorably to the numbers for the previous quarter - 7.46 billion and $1.07 billion respectively. The gross profit margin has increased to 36.3 percent, compared to 34.8 percent for the same period last year.

The nice position that the guys over at Cupertino find themselves in is in no small part due to the great sales that the iPhone makes. 5.2 million samples of the Apple mobile phones have flown off the shelves over the past three months, representing 626 percent growth over the year-ago quarter. The contribution of the App store, from which users have already downloaded more than 1.5 billion Apps is also recognized.

Finally Apple announced that it managed to move 2.6 million Macs (4 percent increase YoY) and 10.2 million iPods (7 percent decline) for the second quarter of the 2009.
