Why does it bother you so much that some people like Apple products that you spend half of your life trolling this forum?
Some of us have been buying Apple products for decades - and are completely satisfied enough to expect another hit product.
Agreed, the people who provide these numbers are experts at "lying" with statistics. Take the figure "hundreds of thousands" that have been pre-ordered. That could mean as few as 200,000 iPads. If you believe the first-day sales of 120,000, then as few as 80K might have been sold over the next 5-6 days -- maybe as few as 13K per day. If sales stabilize at that level, more than 1.2 million iPads will be sold in the first 3 months. More precisely about 1.6 million.
At least Skype-like apps will be available and the iPad 3G does have GPS, but probably not the magnetometer found in the iPhone 3GS.
Keep in mind that these numbers don't include orders for pickup at the Apple stores. Some accounts say that number is roughly equal to these numbers. Plus, business preorders are not included. The total might be closer to 500 K at this point.
