A report from Goldman Sachs analyst Bill Shope today shines a grand light on Apple’s future. Shope met last week with Apple’s Chief Operating officer Tim Cook, Senior Vice President of Retail Ron Johnson and Chief Financial officer Peter Oppenheimer to discuss the company’s prospects and future.
Details passed on by Business Insider are thin but in the meeting Cook is said to have explained why “he sees no reason why the tablet market shouldn’t eclipse the PC market over the next several years[...]“.
Shope also says that Apple’s iPhone is now on 200 carriers worldwide and Apple’s retail stores are “doing very well”.
Shope expects Apple to sell 8.1 million iPads in the June quarter, up 72% year-over-year.
