Apple has announced in a press release that they have sold over 300,000 iPads on the first day. Sales include deliveries of pre-ordered iPads, deliveries to channel partners and Apple Retail Store sales. 300,000 is a lot less than the estimated 600-700k.
According to the press release, iPad users have downloaded over 1 million apps and over 250,000 books from the “iBookstore” in the first day.
â€œIt feels great to have the iPad launched into the worldâ€”itâ€™s going to be a game changer,â€ said Steve Jobs, Appleâ€™s CEO. â€œiPad users, on average, downloaded more than three apps and close to one book within hours of unpacking their new iPad.â€
