Barring any doubts that you may have on Apple’s intent for announcing this remarkable feat achieved by the iPad, we could not escape the fact that indeed this new Apple product has reached the pinnacle of success. Alright, call me an Apple fanboy. I wouldn’t mind it, but you can’t stop me from proclaiming that the iPad is a big success for Apple.
First, let’s lay down the numbers. One million iPads sold in 28 days just for the U.S. market alone. Well of course you can also count in the thousands of iPads which slipped out of the country and landed into the hands of scalpels in Asia or those who are resourceful enough to get the iPad the legit way.
Next, iPad users have downloaded over 12 million apps out of the current 5,000+ available apps from the App Store. Plus 1.5 million ebooks bought from the iBookstore.
According to Steve Jobs – “Demand continues to exceed supply and we’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers.” And I couldn’t agree more.
There shouldn’t be no doubt in our minds right now as to whether Apple was successful with its new product venture. By all means – Yes, the iPad is a big success!
Non-US Apple fanboys who were not brave enough to import the iPad into their countries are still eagerly awaiting for the end of May, the date when Apple promised to deliver the iPad to the international market. Â While those who went out of their way to get the iPad on their hands are probably thinking of getting the iPad 3G right now Â as some folks have confirmed that it will work with international SIM.
One million iPads sold. Do you have one of these one million iPads? Or perhaps more than one?
