Apple sells 2 Million iPads in less than 60 days

Good news for Apple on this May holiday. They’ve now sold over 2 Million iPads.

That breaks down to one million iPads every month, or approximately 35,000 tablets every single day! The iPhone took another 14 days to reach the same milestone! It will be interesting to see what response does Apple’s new iPhone 4G / HD get when it is unveiled on June 07 during WWDC.

As of Monday the iTunes App Store had 8,027 dedicated iPad apps on sale.

Apple had this to say today :

CUPERTINO, California, May 31, 2010 Apple today announced that iPad sales have topped two million in less than 60 days since its launch on April 3. Apple began shipping iPad in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK this past weekend. iPad will be available in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.

And Steve Jobs is quoted in their press release as follows :

“Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”
