Apple has announced plans to hold a conference call to discuss its third quarter financial results the day before Steve Jobs will deliver the keynote address for Macworld Conference & Expo.
Apple said that the conference call will be held at 2 pm Pacific Time on Tuesday, July 17, 2001. The call itself will be Webcast publicly using QuickTime, and Apple has set up a
Web page with more details.
For analysts, industry insiders and consumers alike, this call will be the first inkling of how Apple’s iBook has been doing since its release in May, and there may also be some insight about the results of Apple’s initial foray into the retail market with the opening of its first two Apple Stores.
Apple’s conference call is unlikely to pre-empt CEO Steve Jobs’ keynote address the following day — since his return to the Apple helm Jobs has been infamous for building suspense prior to these events — but it may help to build a framework of some of the info that the CEO will touch on during his time on the Macworld Expo keynote stage.
