Dediu also estimated that with growing sales — the store sold its 25 billionth song earlier this month — and increasing revenues, Apple may now be generating significant operating margins from software and other iTunes sales.

Breaking it down, the analyst calculated that iTunes music revenue was growing at about 10 percent, App Store revenue at around 50 percent, and video and other revenue at around 90 percent.
