Apple: 1 Million iPads & 200,000 Apps - It's Magic

May 3, 2010

Apparently, according to Apple, Pads are selling like hotcakes and a first million units has already been sold. Is that a lot? Well, that is actually all that Apple has been able to produce so far. So if you consider all the folks still waiting for the device all over the world, they'll have no troubles at least tripling that by the summer. As for the iPad 3G, we don't have any official numbers yet, but according to analysts we'd be looking at 300,000 additional units already.

Further, Apple also took advantage of the occasion to point out that the App Store just hit the 200,000 available apps mark.

Here is Apple's official press release; traditional Steve Jobs bonus quote included:

Apple Sells One Million iPads

CUPERTINO, Calif., May 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Apple® today announced that it sold its one millionth iPad™ on Friday, just 28 days after its introduction on April 3. iPad users have already downloaded over 12 million apps from the App Store and over 1.5 million ebooks from the new iBookstore. "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." iPad allows users to connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, all using iPad's revolutionary Multi-Touch™ user interface. iPad is 0.5 inches thin and weighs just 1.5 pounds-thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbook-and delivers up to 10 hours of battery life.* Developers have created over 5,000 exciting new apps for iPad that take advantage of its Multi-Touch user interface, large screen and high-quality graphics. iPad will run almost all of the more than 200,000 apps on the App Store, including apps already purchased for your iPhone® or iPod touch®. *Battery life depends on device settings, usage and other factors. Actual results vary. Apple ignited the personal computer revolution with the Apple II, then reinvented the personal computer with the Macintosh. Apple continues to lead the industry with its award-winning computers, OS X operating system, and iLife, iWork and professional applications. Apple leads the digital music revolution with its iPods and iTunes online store, has reinvented the mobile phone with its revolutionary iPhone and App Store, and has recently introduced its magical iPad which is defining the future of mobile media and computing devices.
