Microsoft announces lower revenue than Apple but still has higher profit…for now

Apple’s over $20B in revenues announced earlier this month easily blew away Microsoft’s $16.20 billion in revenues reported today.  However, Microsoft still retains the profit crown with a whopping $5.4 billion in earnings while Apple “only” reported $4.3 billion this quarter.

I wonder how the holiday quarter is shaping up for the two?  Microsoft is going to have to sell a lot of Xboxes to beat the iOS brigade.
