Apple's iPad Sells Like Hotcakes...Like A Million Hotcakes

Love it or hate it, Apple is the master of product launches. And the iPad has proven to be no exception, as the tablet has now been rung up on the cash register over a million times.

The catalyst that pushed it over the milestone was Friday's release of the iPad 3G, which in and of itself sold 300,000 units. According to Apple, that push brought total iPad sales to the 7-digit mark.

"One million iPads in 28 days—that's less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone. Demand continues to exceed supply and we're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers," said Steve Jobs in a statement.

Despite the fact that Apple is usually dodgy when it comes to numbers, today's press release was filled with them. Sales on the iBookstore have now gone over 1.5 million titles, and more than 200,000 apps are now available on the App Store. Around 5,000 of those were designed specifically for the iPad, while others are merely ported over the iPhone App Store, or jointly developed and marketed for both platforms.

Apple shares went up a higher-than-usual 2.0%+ in early Monday trading.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
