But the big-picture story is that this is a slower period ahead of
the expected new iPhone and potential new iPad this fall (and
maybe someday, a television). Apple’s 23% year-over-year revenue
growth was its slowest since 12% growth in the June 2009 quarter,
and was almost down at Google’s 21% level!
It’s a testimony to just how remarkable Apple’s last few years have been that 23 percent year-over-year growth looks so bad on a chart.
