1 Millionith iPad Already Sold
“One million iPads in 28 days — that’s less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. “Demand continues to exceed supply,” he claimed, “and we’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers.”
Apple says iPad users have downloaded more than 12 million apps for the 1.5 pound tablet computer, and that over 5,000 apps have been created for the iPad (the device can also run most of the 200,000-plus apps already on the App Store as well).
So far, Apple has sold nearly 90 million iPhone OS devices worldwide since being released in 2007.
