Today Apple has announced that they have sold their 1 millionth iPad last Friday. Apple started selling the iPad Wi-Fi on April 3rd then began selling the iPad 3G + Wi-Fi on April 30th.
From the press release:
CUPERTINO, Californiaâ€”May 3, 2010â€”AppleÂ® today announced that it sold its one millionth iPadâ„¢ on Friday, just 28 days after its introduction on April 3. iPad users have already downloaded over 12 million apps from the App Store and over 1.5 million ebooks from the new iBookstore.
â€œOne million iPads in 28 daysâ€”thatâ€™s less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone,â€ said Steve Jobs, Appleâ€™s CEO. â€œDemand continues to exceed supply and weâ€™re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers.â€
iPad allows users to connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, all using iPadâ€™s revolutionary Multi-Touchâ„¢ user interface. iPad is 0.5 inches thin and weighs just 1.5 poundsâ€”thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbookâ€”and delivers up to 10 hours of battery life.*
Developers have created over 5,000 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 200,000 apps on the App Store, including apps already purchased for your iPhoneÂ® or iPod touchÂ®.
