Apple Reaches iPad Milestone: One Million Sold
Apple today announced that it has reached one million iPads sold in the 28 days since the launch of Wi-Fi models in early April. iPad users have also downloaded over 12 million apps and over 1.5 million eBooks during that time.
"One million iPads in 28 days -- that's less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "Demand continues to exceed supply and we're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers."
Apple offered no indication in its press release of sales of Wi-Fi + 3G iPad models, which went on sale in the U.S. last Friday.
Apple previously announced that it had sold 300,000 iPads on the first day of sales of Wi-Fi-only models. Less than a week after that launch, Jobs noted at the company's iPhone OS 4 media event that it had passed 450,000 in iPad sales.
Tracking site Chikita estimated last week that Apple had sold its one millionth iPad even before the 3G-capable models went on sale.
