The Complete Transcript of Steve Jobs' Apple Q4 Earnings Call



Here's the Apple CEO in his own words talking during Apple Q4 Earnings Call:

Hi, everybody. As most of you know, I don’t usually participate in Apple earnings calls, since you’re all in such capable hands with Peter and Tim. But I just couldn’t help dropping by for our first 20-billion-dollar quarter. I’d like to chat about a few things, and then stay for the rest of the Q&A, if that’s all right.

First, let me discuss iPhone. We sold 14.1 million iPhones in the quarter, which represents a 91 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter, and was well ahead of IDC’s latest published estimate of 64 percent growth for the global smartphone market in the September quarter. And it handily beats RIM’s 12.1 million BlackBerrys sold, in their most recent quarter ending in August.

Unlock for iOS 4.1 and 4.2 is possible



Hacker Sherif Hashim has discovered an exploit in iPhone's baseband which could bring an unlock for iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2. Here are tweets from him:

@sherif_hashim: since nearly all my received tweets ask about both BB, I can report very early "initial" 1st step success on both sides, calmed down? :)

@sherif_hashim: @mrpauldurden a bit more sure than this, yeah

@mrpauldurden: @sherif_hashim very early first steps means.. you've found a crash that can potentially prove to be an expoitable vulnerability?

In the past Hashim found a baseband crash in iOS 4.0, his work brought us ultrasn0w 1.01, utility from DevTeam to unlock iPhone with iOS 4.0.
Another hacker Veeence tweets that the unlock won't be released till iOS 4.2. Apple plans to release 4.2 in November:

@veeence: A new exploitable baseband crash has been found. An unlock will very likely be released after iOS 4.2 and will unlock both BB's of 4.1 & 4.2
