Analyst estmates 9.5 million Apple iPods for quarter

Apple Store“An analysis of April unit data from market research firm NPD leads researchers at PiperJaffray to believe that iPod shipments for Apple’s June quarter could come in around 9.5 million units, slightly below Street estimates of 9.8 million units,” Prince McLean reports for AppleInsider.

“For Apple’s June quarter, the analyst [Gene Munster] isn’t expecting iPhone sales to have a material impact on financials, as the device is likely to launch with only a matter of days left in the quarter. However, he bills the company’s upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference as a ‘significant wildcard in the quarter,’ which could draw positive reactions from investors,” McLean reports.

McLean reports, “As part of the annual Apple developer gathering, Munster said he’s prepared for a full-featured demonstration of Leopard, including a demo of how Leopard will integrate Windows interoperability. He’s also expecting new MacBook Pros and the possibility of redesigned iMacs.”
