Report: Apple selling 200,000 iPads per week

Apple is reportedly selling more than 200,000 iPads per week in the US, outselling sales of Mac computers according to figures from a Premier Investment Bank. Those iPad sales are still behind iPhone 3GS sales however, estimated at 246,000 per week, calculates RBC Capital Markets analyst Mike Abramsky.

In a note to clients, Abramsky raised his global iPad outlook for iPad sales in 2010 from 5 million to 8 million, while his third quarter - end of June - iPad sales forecast is up from 1.5 million to 2.5 million. Apple recently announced it had officially sold its one millionth iPad in just 28 days, while unprecedented demand has been blamed for an international launch delay. For lucky customers who pre-ordered, the iPad will finally be available in the UK next Friday, 28 May, while the Apple online store currently lists "Ships: By June 7th" for all six versions of the iPad.

Abramsky also speculates that Apple could sell 23 million next generation iPhones, dubbed the iPhone HD in recent reports, globally in 2010, or 58 per cent of all iPhone sales for the year. Apple could unveil a new iPhone as early as next month, when the company holds the annual Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2010, which this year runs between 7 and 11 June. Abramsky suggests 20 per cent of all 1,000 respondents surveyed intend to buy the fourth incarnation of the iPhone, more than twice the number who claimed they would buy Apple's smartphone when it first launched in 2007.
