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

that's an average of more than 33,000 iPads being sold each day, VERY impressive and those numbers are only going to grow once it becomes available in more and more countries!

The more people, the more apps, the more accessories, etc.

I do believe some 'experts' said that Apple would be lucky to sell 2.5 million in a year. I wonder if they are happy in their new job?

Take the average price of $600.00 dollars each and multiply it by 2 million it boggles my mind.

It just goes to show that if you build a quality product that fits a market need, you will be successful. This market was wide open..... Sony could have made it, Dell could have made it, HP could have made it, but they didn't. They did not have the vision or innovative drive to do it. And now once again they are reduced to copying, and trying to make a iPod/iPhone/iPad "killer".

Apple earned their success, congrats to them.....

Yeah you are right, i deeply believe the only one can made a serious competitor is Nintendo they have the developer, the existing app’s catalogue .. concerning the computer manufacturer that will be difficult for them , they have the capacity to made a tablet but without at the beginning one of the biggest Apple advantage : the app’s available ….

Of course also the device have a part of responsibility but we can’t deny Itunes is a kind of gold mine for everybody ….

This is definitely a financial success for Apple and good for us as owners. The more users, the more apps and 3rd party support. I do think its early to declare that this is all about what a great product the iPad is. I think it says more about how good Apple's previous products have been. Consumers have confidence that the iPad will be equally as good. I will be very curious to see if they can keep sales strong once the first wave of buyers drops off. I know of at least one person who pre-ordered one without ever seeing it just because it was Apple's latest product and he wanted to have it. He has had it a few weeks and already stopped carrying it and said he doesn't use it much anymore - only at home occasionally. I dont know if he is typical of the 2 million, but I suspect he is not alone.

That sure some have buy it for be in the trend, if you are a web consumer or e-book reader iPad can be not so useful … but even in case like this he can easily replace a Notebook like many people have one at home and nearly never unplug and bring it out

I agree. Although I dont think it will be a matter of the others "copying". The Tablet form factor has been out for a long time - Apple didnt invent the idea. My old Compaq TC1000 from 8 yrs ago was only slightly larger than the iPad and I loved it. Unfortunately Microsoft didnt support the platform with proper pen or touch interface to make it really shine the way Apple is doing it.

What Apple has done is to make the most portable Tablet and bring it to the market RIGHT NOW. Honestly, I was holding out to see what HP's tablet looked like and was interested in the some of the Andriod options supposedly on the way. Finally, I realized that so far everyone else has talk. Apple has the iPad right now for sale, so I bought one. The others may come along. They might even be better. But for me, it has been too little, too late from the others.
