Over 300,000 iPads sold on launch day
I’m sure most of you already know this, but for the sake of discussion…the iPad sold over 300,000 on launch day. Initial reports had it much higher, but still that’s a pretty solid number for a first gen product, right?
Now, not all of those 300,000 were folks lined up at Apple Stores. Apple says the figure also includes "deliveries of pre-ordered iPads to customers, deliveries to channel partners and sales at Apple Retail Stores." Still, those are sales for only a single day in the United States only. For reference, Apple sold 1.12 million iPhones during that device’s first full quarter of sales in 2007.
