Apple announced that they have sold three million new iPads since its release last Friday. Clearly, that's a huge number and its very impressive. That's just only one million below the iPhone 4S level numbers, but iPads cost a lot of money too.
It took the original iPad 80 days to reach three million units, and it took the iPad 2 28 days to reach one million units. Of course, the iPad 2 was only initially available in the United States. The iPad 3 was launched simultaneously in US, United Kingdom, Australia, France, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan, Puerto Rico, Switzerland and the US Virgin Islands.
