Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) says it has sold 1 million of its new computers in the month after its launch, meaning it’s been selling more than twice as fast as the iPhone did when it was new.
“iPad users have already downloaded over 12 million apps from the App Store and over 1.5 million ebooks from the new iBookstore,” the company said in a statement Monday morning.
Apple Inc. of Cupertino, Calif., says it reached the milestone on Friday, when the new 3G model of the iPad was delivered to its first buyers.
Demand keeps exceeding supply, Apple CEO Steve Jobs added.
“One million iPads in 28 days—that’s less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone,” Jobs said. “Demand continues to exceed supply and we’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers.”
