Sales profits found in unsealed Apple versus Samsung court docs

According to recently unsealed documents from this coming Monday's Apple-versus-Samsung trial, the Cupertino-based company earned gross margins of 49 to 58 percent on US iPhone sales between April 2010 and the end of March 2012. The iPad had much lower margin between October 2010 and the end of March 2012, seeing profits between 23 and 32 percent. Apple has declined to comment on the court filing.

US iPhone sales during the period reported to the court generated revenue of more than $33 billion, while the 17 months detailed in the court filings saw $13 billion in revenue from iPad sales. Neither amount includes marketing costs, or other related expenses beyond device production and packaging.

The Apple-versus-Samsung trial is scheduled to begin on Monday in in San Jose, California. Apple is seeking roughly $2.53 billion in damages, which could be potentially tripled if Samsung is found to be in willful violation of Apple's patents, plus permanent US sales and import injunctions on some Samsung phones and tablets.
