Cupertino based Apple Inc has announced that it has sold more than three million iPads since its launch on Friday, March 16th during the product’s first weekend on the market, including preorders. That’s three times more the number of iPad 2 tablets that analysts estimated the company sold during that product’s opening weekend last year, though the company did not take advance orders for the iPad 2. It’s extremely impressive given the fact that the remaining iPad stock that many stores had on Friday.
The new iPad has some fantastic features. The display has been amped up to a Retina display which has a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, and it also features a new processor, the Apple A5x and comes with 1GB of RAM, plus 4G LTE. “The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold?the strongest iPad launch yet,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Customers are loving the incredible new features of iPad, including the stunning Retina display, and we can’t wait to get it into the hands of even more customers around the world this Friday.”
