This morning Apple announced that it has sold over two million iPad units in less than 60 days since the device’s initial USA launch on April 3, 2010. The one million unit milestone was met on May 3, 2010, 28 days since the original launch date.
Apple today announced that iPad sales have topped two million in less than 60 days since its launch on April 3. Apple began shipping iPad in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK this past weekend. iPad will be available in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.
Also of note in the press release, Apple CEO Steve Jobs had a few words,
“Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”
With Apple Stores selling out of iPad units across Canada and the other retailers (Future Shop, etc) selling out as well, Apple continues to deal with shortage problems for the iPad. However the supply issues are not only evident in Canada, but in the USA as well.
By comparison, Apple sold two million iPod units in under two years from the iPod original launch date and took four months to sell two million iPhone units.
