One Million iPads Sold, Apple Says

One Million iPads Sold, Apple Says

Apple says it has sold 1 million iPads since the tablets went on sale April 3.

Apple is bragging it has sold 1 million iPads just days after its iPad 3G went on sale last Friday. The announcement comes less than a month after Apple began shipping the Wi-Fi only version to customers on April 3. In addition to preliminary sales figures, Apple also said that iPad users have already downloaded 12 million apps for the iPad, and 1.5 million e-books.

In a prepared statement Apple's CEO Steve Jobs said: "One million iPads in 28 days-that's less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone.. Demand continues to exceed supply and we're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers."

On Monday, analysts at Piper Jaffray estimated Apple sold 300,000 iPad 3Gs to a welcome public over this past weekend. The 300,000 figure mirrors sales numbers for the first weekend sales for the iPad Wi-Fi tablet, according to Piper Jaffray. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Apple Stores in San Francisco, New York, Boston, and Houston sold out of the iPad 3G by Saturday - the first full day the iPad 3G was available.

So far, the iPad has been sold in the United States only. International pre-orders for the device begin on May 10 for Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K.
