Apple Earnings Call Starts Soon

Apple's earnings report starts in just a half hour (5 p.m. EST), and analysts and investors are expecting big bucks driven by iPhone sales, their deal with AT&T and big new product launches, despite a few rocky points this quarter. Above is a collection of estimates wrangled up by Fortune. We'll see how on the mark they are soon enough, where we'll be blogging it as it happens so you don't have to fall asleep listening to it. Microsoft's is on Thursday at 5:30 EST, so we can make all kinds of fun comparisons in a couple of days. [Fortune, Apple]
