Apple a anuntat astazi in mod oficial ca a vandut 1 milion de iPads la doar 28 de zile de la lansarea ce a avut loc la inceputul acestei luni, o perioada mult mai scurta decat in cazul primului iPhone care a atins 1 milion de vanzari la abia 2 luni si jumatate dupa lansarea oficiala.
Apple continua comunicatul spunand ca inca exista probleme cu stocurile insa va face tot posibilul pentru a-si tine promisiunile si a lansa international tableta la sfarsitul acesti luni si a face cat mai multi utilizatori fericiti.
So, 1 milion la nici o luna, se pare ca analistii care estimau ca Apple va vinde aproximativ 7 milioane iPads anul acesta nu au gresit.

Apple Sells One Million iPads
CUPERTINO, California-May 3, 2010-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.
