The haters may continue to hate, but Apple keep selling millions of tablets. They issued a press release yesterday which claims they sold over 3 million iPads in 3 days.
The 3 million figure includes the iPad Mini and the latest iPad 3. They said “Apple today announced it has sold three million iPads in just three days since the launch of its new iPad® mini and fourth generation iPad—double the previous first weekend milestone of 1.5 million Wi-Fi only models sold for the third generation iPad in March. The Wi-Fi + Cellular versions of both iPad mini and fourth generation iPad will ship in a few weeks in the US and in many more countries later this year. ”
Tim Cook added “Customers around the world love the new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad. We set a new launch weekend record and practically sold out of iPad minis. We’re working hard to build more quickly to meet the incredible demand.”
Kitguru says: While many people claim the ‘sold out’ claims are fictional to drive sales, Apple are claiming they have doubled their previous iPad launch sales record.
