Apple Sells One Million iPads

ipad23.jpgIn a press release yesterday, Apple celebrated the sale of one million iPads. While Amazon has made a habit of not unveiling sales statistics, Apple has revealed sales statistics since the very first weekend.

Here’s an excerpt from the official release: “‘One million iPads in 28 days–that’s less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone,’ said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. ‘Demand continues to exceed supply and we’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers.’”

After the first weekend of iPad sales last month, Apple noted that iPad users downloaded over one million apps from Apple’s App Store and over 250,000 ebooks from its iBookstore during the first day. We’d love to see more of those download statistics.
