Analysts are telling Bloomberg that Apple likely sold 2 times and even 3 times as many iPads its first weekend in release (including pre-sales) than everyone thought possible. By comparison, Apple reportedly took 74 days to sell 1 million first generation, while the iPhone 3G and Phone 3GS each took just 3 days to sell the first million units. Estimates are that 5 million iPads may be sold in the first 12 months compared with 6.1 million iPhones in its first year on the market), and perhaps 7.1 million globally. Me, I love gadgetry but I still can’t figure out why I need to lug this around and an iPhone and a Kindle and a laptop… But I’m sure Apple and Hollywood will convince me.
