One of the great success stories of 2010 so far is Apple’s iPad with over 3 million sales in a very short space of time. Figures just in show that the iPad has already generated over $2.2 billion in revenue for Apple in the June Quarter.
“Apple’s iPad is already huge. In fact, after just its first quarter of sales, it’s already the company’s third-biggest business segment,” Dan Frommer reports for The Business Insider. “That’s more than Apple’s iPod business generated last quarter — $1.5 billion. (Though the cheaper iPod obviously had larger unit sales.) And it’s almost half as big as Apple’s 26-year-old Mac business, which put in its best quarter ever at $4.4 billion.”
