Despite Steve Jobs announcing a medical leave of absence yesterday, Apple’s Q1 financial results announcement today revealed “record $6 billion profit on a record $26.7 billion in revenue.” This caused shares in Apple (AAPL) to leap “almost 4 percent after hours following a brief trading suspension — it later backtracked to stand about 2 percent higher.” In related news, the white Apple iPhone 4 will purportedly be launched on February 27th, according to a Best Buy screenshot that can be seen after the break.

iPhone 4 sales were predictably strong through the holidays, clocking in at a record 16.2m units, or up 86 percent from last year, while Mac sales went up 23 percent to a record 4.13m and iPod sales were stronger than expected at 19.45m, a seven percent decline.
