Apple ships 100 millionth iPhone, 15 million iPads sold in 2010


Apple's been having one record quarter after another lately, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that it still has plenty more to boast about when it comes to sales. At it's event today, Steve Jobs revealed that the company recently shipped it's 100 millionth iPhone, and that it sold 15 million iPads in 2010 -- a figure he points out is "more than every tablet PC ever sold," and one that translates to $9.5 billion in revenue and a more than 90 percent market share. Jobs also noted that there's now 65,000 apps specifically for the iPad compared to just 100 for Honeycomb tablets, and he even got in a bit of a dig at Samsung's now infamous (and misquoted) comments about its Galaxy Tab sales for good measure.
