AT&T Announces Single-Day Record for iPad Sales and Activations

AT&T has issued a brief statement indicating that it set a new single-day record for iPad sales and activations, but stopping short of providing any hard numbers.
On Friday, March 16, AT&T set a new single-day record for its iPad sales and activations, demonstrating robust demand for the new iPad on the nation's largest 4G network, covering nearly 250 million people.
The announcement comes after Apple also said it saw a "record weekend" for the new iPad, which launched on Friday, March 16th.

Neither company has released the exact number of sales or activations.

I'll ask again, what does what happened twenty years ago have to do with present day?

Nope. There's WiFi almost everywhere. With a little planning, you'll never need to connect using anything else.


Well, as I learned this weekend, free WiFi, simply put, SUCKS! :mad:

It's good for emails and maybe surfing the web. But even when downloading apps it's worthless.

I went to two McDonald's, three Starbucks and one public library. 3G was faster in every case.
