What can you do in 80 days? You can circle the globe, lose some weight, orif you’re Apple, you can sell over 3 million iPads. In a press releaseissued a short while ago, Apple announced that iPad sales continue to impress.
Apple today announced that it sold its three millionth iPad yesterday, just 80 days after its introduction in the US. iPad is a revolutionary and magical product that allows users to connect with their apps, content and the Internet in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before.
“People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people around the world, including those in nine more countries next month.”
Developers have created over 11,000 exciting new apps for iPad that take advantage of its Multi-Touch™ user interface, large screen and high-quality graphics. iPad will run almost all of the more than 225,000 apps on the App Store, including apps already purchased for your iPhone or iPod touch.
Impressively, iPad sales are not only increasing, but accelerating. It took Apple 60 days to sell 2 million iPads, an average of 1 million units per 30 days. The last 1 million iPads were sold in a span of just 20 days.
