The first day results are in! Apple has just released a press statement confirming that it sold over 300, 000 iPads in the US as of midnight Saturday, April 3rd. These figures include deliveries of pre-ordered iPads to customers, deliveries to channel partners and sales at Apple Retail Stores. Apple also announced that iPad users downloaded over one million apps from Apple’s App Store and over 250,000 ebooks from its iBookstore during day one. Apple CEO Steve Jobs is quite pleased! Here’s what he had to say:
By Maura Sutton“It feels great to have the iPad launched into the world – it’s going to be a game changer. iPad users, on average, downloaded more than three apps and close to one book within hours of unpacking their new iPad.”
Is it just me, or does anyone else not know exactly what “close to one book” means?!
