Apple Sold Over 3 Million New iPads Since its Launch
Apple enjoys brisk sales, sells 3 million units of the new iPad since March 16
Since arriving in stores last March 16, over 3 million units of the new iPad has been sold, making it a “blockbuster and the strongest iPad launch yet” says Philip Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, in an official press release.
“Customers are loving the incredible new features of iPad, including the stunning Retina display, and we can’t wait to get it into the hands of even more customers around the world this Friday.” Schiller added.
This is a record breaker for Apple because only 400,000 to 500,000 units of iPad 2’s and only 600,000 to 700,000 units of the first generation iPad were sold in its opening weekend according to Piper Jaffray analyst, Gene Munster.
Sales are expected to increase since it will be launched in 24 additional countries on March 23 at 8:00 a.m. local time.View Article Source »
