Thursday's event kicks off busy week for Apple

iPad sales figures should be especially interesting, as Apple's iPad 2 faced increased pressure during the holiday season from lower-priced tablets led by Amazon's Kindle Fire. The consensus among analysts polled by Fortune is that Apple sold a little less than 14 million iPads, which would be a gain of 90 percent from the year-ago period.

As of Monday, analyst estimates have Apple posting earnings of $9.95 per share on $38.58 billion for the fiscal first quarter. In October, Apple chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer told analysts to expect earnings of $9.30 per share and $37 billion in revenue.
