Interested in how many iPads Apple shifted over the Christmas period? Then you’ll want to tune into the Cupertino company’s first quarter financial results later this month. It issued a note on its investor site earlier today to confirm that its live webcast will begin at 12:00 PM GMT/5:00 PM ET on the 24th of January.

The webcast will be streamed through Apple’s website and you don’t need a special invite to watch. Simply ensure you have Quicktime installed on your system, and visit the site before things get underway.

The call will be particularly interesting because it covers a quarter in which we’ve seen the launch of iOS 5, Apple’s next-generation mobile operating system; the iPhone 4S, which is shaping up to be the most successful iPhone yet; and its recently release iCloud service.

As 9to5Mac notes, Apple rarely lets slip its future plans during the call – so don’t tune in expecting to hear all about the iPad 3 and an Apple television set – but it has be known to hint at upcoming products or services in the past.

Apple is likely to hold a question-and-answer session with company executives proceeding the event, as it has done with previous webcasts, and it will release a press release that details its first quarter results in full for those who missed the call.

Will you be tuning in?
