Apple has had a very successful product on it's hands with the iPad. Before the release many people said it would be a flop... that it duplicated functionality of other devices, that it just wouldn't sell. Apple has proved them wrong. Not only has the iPad created a whole new hardware category, but it's combined the functionality of so many devices into one, and it's done it in a way that people feel is superior to the older devices. All of this is reflected in the fact that Apple has sold over 2 million iPads in 60 days.
The International release of the iPad seems to be going superbly for Apple as well.
Apple has decided to toot their horn a little bit with a press release bragging about the fact, and you can check that out here: Apple Sells Two Million iPads in Less Than 60 Days
