iPad Launch Blasts Out 700,000 iPad Units

The first day sales numbers, including pre-orders for the Apple iPad, are approaching the 3/4 million mark at 700,000 units estimated by Gene Munster, an analyst with Piper Jaffray. Original numbers from Daniel Tello around the 20th of March had 200,000 iPad units sold.  The next 12 days apparently added about 500,000 iPads sold…and that’s with the 3G iPad not yet available! If the numbers hold, this could challenge the iPhone’s first month sales numbers that put about 3 million iPhones on the market.  This would be the first tablet pc device adopted on a massive scale.  While some think of the iPad as an oversided iPhone, the iPad appears to be the next device from the Apple world to take hold.

iPad Sales Zoom in 2011 if Apple Addresses iPad Flash

The iPad went on retail sale today at the Apple Store and BestBuy in limited supply, and pre-order customers could come to pick up their iPad tablets today…and the sales numbers reflect just that.  But we’re just at the tip of the iceburg. iSuppli, an electronics research group, predicts that the iPad will sell well over 7 million units and will almost double in 2011.   iSuppli doesn’t see the product so much as a tablet pc as it does a hybrid of that and a pure internet device.  In essence, once again, Apple has created a market for a device that really didn’t exist or have traction before. In the article, it is noted that Adobe Flash (or lack thereof) may be a barrier that could open up a door to a … Read entire article »

iPad Launching in Apple Stores, but No Lines

With just hours to go until the launch of the new iPad in Apple’s retail stores, we’re all wondering where the lines are.  Granted, there was a massive pre-order push from consumers that pushed the numbers well into Tello’s 200,000 iPad pre-order prediction, but nothing?  No lines anywhere? It’s possible the iPhone frenzy isn’t here for the iPad, or it’s possible that since it’s just a big, souped-up version of the iPhone there’s less WOW factor.  One thing is certain, the iPad will be in stores tomorrow and if you’re lucky enough you can get one without the lines. Supplies are extremely limited. But with many able to pre-order the gadget since mid-March, there was little reason to stand in line ahead of Saturday’s 9 a.m. launch. Those who ordered early enough online … Read entire article »
