The Notebook Company says sales of Apple iPhones are brisk

While notebook and accessories retailer, The Notebook Company, said it is essentially not in the smart phone market it is nonetheless making “brisk business” in the sale of the Apple iPhone 5 – although sales are not as robust as in comparison to Apple iPad sales.

According to Christopher Riley, MD of The Notebook Company clients were still clamoring for iPad 1 and 2s, with iPad 3 sales “consistently good”. “Apple iPad sales are consistently good, even though Apple has lost some of its market share in the last few months as the market expands on the back of what is a vibrant and growing market sector.”
While Apple has lost market share it has not really impacted on its revenues that much as the size of the cake in the tablet market has essentially gotten bigger.

Riley said The Notebook Company is “meeting a demand” by selling Apple iPhone 5 units, but said sales of the new smart phone would not have a material impact on the company’s total revenue.

“Apple sales in general certainly have a marked impact on our total revenue. It is well over 20% now – but we see the supply of Apple iPhones as a service to our client base as the smart phone market is not one we will seriously enter,” he said.
