Apple Mac and iPod Sales Up on Previous Year

Apple seems to be doing everything right these days, Mac and the iPod sales are up January and February 2010 over the same period in 2009. The iPhone maker must be doing something right as sales for the iPod were down just a couple of months ago.

For the first two months of this year Mac sales were up by 39 percent from 2009, Fortune Brainstorm Tech says that this equates to around 2.8 to 2.9 million Mac sales for Q1 – sales were expected to only see an increase of 22 percent.

We recently reported that iPod sales were in decline – this 7 percent increase in sales over the past two months were a shock to us all. Reports suggest that sales of the iPod were between 9 to 10 million for the first quarter of 2010.

The reason why sales have improved over last year is because there is more confidence in the market – along with creeping out of the recession. We will wait and see how sales go over the next three months – although these are considered the lower months of the year in terms of consumer spending.
