Apple confirms sale of 3 million iPads, since March 16 launch
| by Aaron Almeida |
The latest iPad may not have changed at all in the looks department; in fact it is only slightly thicker and heavier, as compared to its predecessor - the iPad 2. However, in terms of its internal specifications, Apple has bumped up the new iPad to a whole new level with it having some neat features, such as a Retina Display, a dual-core A5X processor, quad-core GPU, iSight camera and a larger battery, just to name a few. If one thought that the new iPad would not sell, given that it features a similar design, one can guess again as Apple have announced that three million units of the latest generation iPad have already been sold since March 16th 2012, its launch date.
Sales are off the charts!
The original iPad sold 3,00,000 units in the first day and made it to a million units within 28 days of its launch, while the iPad 2 touched the sales figure of a million units within just a matter of four days. The higher amount of sales are also due to the fact that Apple has pushed out the tablet to more countries, this time around, as compared to the previous two models. The new iPad is already available in the U.S, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland, UK and the U.S Virgin Islands. The previous iPads were initially available only in the U.S and only later rolled out, globally.
The new iPad will be available in 24 more countries on Friday March 23rd, 2012.
