Apple will announce its third quarter 2006 results after markets close at 5pm (Eastern time, 10pm UK time) tomorrow.

The company will host a conference call for press and analysts during which it will reveal its results.

The announcement and discussion will also be made available as a streamed webcast (in QuickTime format).

Recent analyst predictions have suggested Apple will meet the high-end of its previously stated $4.2 billion to $4.4 billion target, with suspected softer iPod sales compensated for by better-than-anticipated sales of MacBooks and MacBook Pros.
