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 Appleâ€™s App Store and over 250,000 ebooks from its iBookstore during day one. Apple CEO Steve Jobs is quite pleased! Hereâ€™s what he had to say:
By Maura Suttonâ€œIt feels great to have the iPad launched into the world â€“ itâ€™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.â€
Is it just me, or does anyone else not know exactly what â€œclose to one bookâ€ means?!
