Apple now largest mobile device company in the world


With $15.6 billion in revenue last quarter, Apple is now the largest mobile device company in the world, company co-founder Steve Jobs proclaimed Wednesday.

By revenue, Jobs said, Apple is the largest mobile devices company in the world — larger than Nokia, Sony and Samsung. "It's amazing," he said.

Just recently, Apple sold its 250 millionth iPod, the CEO also revealed.

"I just didn't want to let this moment pass without recognizing it," he said. "It's pretty amazing."

Apple also now has more than 140,000 applications available on its App Store. That's well up from the 100,000 revealed by the company in late 2009.
