    Apple selling 1.2 million iPads per month, rate could double by holidays

    from AppleInsider


    Monthly sales of Apple's new iPad device have been rising steadily over the past several months, prompting the electronics maker to adopt a second supplier of 9.7-inch display panels in anticipation of strong fourth quarter sales that could top 6 million.

    The iPad must be taking a huge bite out of net book sales.

    Beat me to it. By the time decent competiton for the iPad comes out, netbooks will become a thing of the past.

    There's a guy in my Battery that has a net book... he's trying to get rid of it so he can buy an iPad :D I can't say i'm shocked by the amount of sales though.

    iPad has begun killing PC sales - woe to Microsoft windows

    The belief that the iPad is eating the netbook’s lunch isn’t new. However, we can now mark the calendar: 2012. That’s according to one analysis firm which also dropped this bombshell: 'tablet devices will soon comprise nearly 25 percent of all PC sales'.

    I think that is a good move.
