“Tim Cook didn’t break much news Tuesday night at AllThingsD,” Philip Elmer-DeWitt reports for Fortune.
“But he did provide a new data point about Apple TV,” P.E.D. reports. “He said the company has sold more than 13 million — about half of them in the past year.”
P.E.D. reports, “According to Asymco’s Horace Dediu, Cook is not counting the first generation Apple TV (Jan. 2007 to Sept. 2010). If that model were included, according to Dediu’s estimates, the total would be closer to 19 million.”
