Apple sells 2 million iPads in under 2 months

post #1 of 266
Thread Starter 
Apple said Monday that iPad sales have topped two million in less than 60 days since it first launched in the U.S. on April 3.

Word of the milestone comes just days after the Cupertino-based company expanded sales of the device to international markets, shipping units in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.

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

In April, Apple announced that it would delay international availability of the iPad by roughly a month's time after the company discovered that domestic demand for the device was far outpacing its estimates.

The company initially sold 500,000 iPad's during the device's first week on the market. That number doubled three weeks later when Apple announced on May 3rd that it had shipped its millionth unit.

On average, Apple would appear to be selling just over 35,700 iPads each day and the company boasts a catalog of over 5,000 new applications for the touch-screen device that have been authored by its developer community.

Apple also said Monday that the iPad will be available in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.

I hope supply increases quickly. I don't like the shortages' effect on profit. The 3GS had similar problems this past year and it decreased the number of iPhones sold by a few million, from what I can see.

I am not surprised. My iPad has become more and more useful to me each day as I figure out how using it suits me best. It has become the one of my primary devices in a very short time!

The only question is whether this level of demand will go up, down or stay level. The early adopters have now bought in. It remains to be seen whether the general public will continue to lust after the iPad. I think there might be at least a small sales spike when iPhone OS 4.0 is released in the fall.

Current studies are showing an increase in demand, but 4.0 could bring a push of demand from the more "techy" people who "need" multi-tasking.

That's 5,000 iPad only apps. When we include universal apps, the number rises to about 8,200.

I'm amazed at how much more useful many of those universal apps are on my iPad as opposed to how they are on my iPhone, though when I got them for the phone, they seemed very good.

It's also worldwide demand. As it reaches more countries, like the iPhone, sales will continue to rise.

How many iPads were shipped to those nine countries that started selling them the other day?

I bet Apple could say 3 million iPads sold in less than two months and not be TOO far off the mark! Heck Japan alone, nahhh...

Okay, what do I know... I'm gonna get burned for my three mil comment but it is good to see the iPad doing well.

Every time I'm marveling at it at Best Buy asking when there next shipment arrives, some teenage know-it-all boy comes buy with a friend, picks up the iPad and claims with authority, "It's just a bigger iPod Touch!".

Hardly!!!

I think the all-too-common response from the weak minded is that the iPad is just another gadget.

But I think there are a lot of savvy people out there with big plans for it. My wife read in the NYT this morning about Kudzu Interactive's SnapFinger restaurant app for various mobile devices so far, but they're planning apps for the iPad which will replace conventional menus in restaurants. Kudzu makes a commission off of every customer order.

Only a fool would waste his breath yammering about what the iPad is not. Who cares?

I care about what the iPad could be with all of its potential applications which will indeed change our lives for the better.

These numbers don't include the international rollout which is just getting underway and by all accounts is going very well.

That, plus the aforementioned release of the 4.0 OS, will undoubtedly spike June sales-- my guess to well over a million. Even if sales slow a bit over the rest of summer and fall, then you're moving into the Christmas season. And of course you've got to figure in the supply constraints easing at some point, which have surely somewhat hampered sales to date.

Seems pretty much a slam dunk that Apple will sell at least 10 million iPads in just the eight months of its first year of availability-- which I believe is at the outside extreme of what even the most feverish analyst was predicting.

And then there's the competition, which I think is interesting. One of the arguments against likely mass market success for the iPad was that it was this neither fish nor fowl thing that consumers had no particular reason to want. That, contrasted to the success of the iPhone, which was understood to be a product that people already wanted and needed.

Given the its success, that same quality may work in the iPad's favor. Android powered tablets won't be "just another tablet" like Android phones are just more phones. The iPad has quite literally created this market from scratch (yes, I know tablets existed, they sucked and nobody bought them so get over it).

Anyone coming in now with a me-too product are going to have to do more work to convince people that their iteration of the iPad is worth having, because there isn't that comfort factor of going down to Verizon to get your next phone and just sort of falling into an Android handset.

I was bouncing back and forth from a magazine (Dwell) and Safari last night. It was pretty terrible having to go back into the magazine book shelf then into the issue each time I wanted to find a new link on a product that was advertised, then go back to Safari and have the page reload. Multi-tasking will definitely help. Can't wait.

Unfortunately, only the iPhone and iPod Touch will be getting the 4.0 update next week. The iPad will be getting it in the fall, probably at the September iPod event; but there will still be the spike in sales, even if it is a bit later. Hopefully that will give them some time to sort out the supply problems.

Good point, although there may be some "halo effect" from the iPhone publicity (not that the iPad is being ignored, of course).

Yeah, I had the same problem when I wanted to record a speech while reading it from the iPad, but could only have one app open at a time. I'm not saying multi-tasking is not a terrific addition, just that it hasn't stopped most people from buying it anyway.

Great!
They have sold two million.
Im still waiting over two weeks and mine (ordered online 15 days ago) is still somewhere in the bowels of Fedex between China and New Jersey!!
if only they'd have a supply so that i could have bounght one at one of the two Apple stores that bracket my home!

I only hope that when the new iphone hits the market, that Ill be able to actually purchase one.
Apple has succeeded in creating this marvelous marketing hype (as well as this marvelous product and marvelous others). If they could onbly figure out how to manufacture enough of them to meet the demand!

But honestly these are crazy numbers. I can almost guarantee that at least some of those sold in US were actually ebayed overseas. Even if you can only buy one, selling it for a grand to germany or russia is a sick profit. Sell a couple with your younger brother and you got a MacBook for college.

I took a look at the iPad in a mac store and I did not see a need for one, considering I have a 13 inch macbook. For someone with a 17 incher or even a 15 incher this might be an awesome device, for people that need to hold a PC for their jobs might also be good, but for me as a student right now it is not a device I need.

I refuse to believe that this oversized iPod is selling so well when it has no USB port, a screen that is bad for reading, is too heavy and uncomfortable to hold, has no multitasking, and has a closed app system. Never mind the reality of the situation; the haters must be right!

Poor, poor haters.
Apple has no competition. Every commercial product which competes directly with an Apple product gives the distinct impression that, Where it is original, it is not good, and where it is good, it...

Apple's products, while refined with each new version, start off as well-polished products, largely because under Jobs' direction, there is a passion for getting the details right.

If this were a Microsoft product, no way they'd have that many sold so soon after launch because most of us would be unwilling to serve as volunteer testers.

Myself, though, I'm hoping that Apple will significantly revise the Touch by adding a larger screen, something in the 5-inch range. That device might well be enough to meet my needs and be more compact than the iPad. Of course that's pure speculation on my part but I do think some changes to the Touch are needed to better integrate Apple's touch-screen product line. Apple likes to have products that are close enough one to the other to entice folks to spend just a little more. Right now the difference between the Touch and the iPad is out of whack with the difference in price. Between the iPhone on one end and the iPad on the other, I think the Touch, if it remains as is, will have a hard time remaining a good seller.

Myself I have a desktop set-up that I use for heavy lifting but I also have a Time Capsule and am currently using a netbook (not happy with it but it's already there) away from my desk. If the iPad hadn't come along, a laptop would have been my next purchase but now I'm thinking why spend more than a grand for an Apple laptop or worse, resort to using a PC laptop. Now there is an affordable alternative and I'm hoping in the next year or so the options will expand.

Yep same with me...Desktop/iMac, MacBook, iPad, iPhone, Time Capsule, MobileMe and I'm good to go.

I will say though that once my original intel iMac/desktop stops working...I will most likely not replace it and just keep using my original intel MacBook and when it breaks, I will probably replace both with the new, soon to be released, MBA.

Then I will have an MBA, iPad, 4G iPhone, Time Capsule, MobileMe and be truly a mobile guy able to setup shop where ever I am!

Best!

You 'll be able to lay on your bed, on your sofa, in the park, sit in a cafe and read your textbooks, journals, lecture note pdfs, magazines etc. you can't do that with ease with a 13" macbook, or any laptop or netbook for that matter. There's an overlap between the devices surely, but those needs are only partly met for some people, and for others (such as myself) not at all - I 've never been able to read a journal article, merely (skim through it) without printing it. Same for books, I hope the ipad changes that, I don't have one yet (I am in the UK) but I am planning to get one soon, and see how it works. My impressions with e-ink readers have been positive. The fact that besides being a "reader" the ipad adds a multitude of added computing/social/etc. functions is very welcome.

I've had the same thing happen with my iPhone and pro audio test app. I bunch of my audio minded friends switched phones and carriers just so they could buy AudioTools, now available for the iPad.

Poor, poor haters.

I for one, am glad it doesn't have a USB port...I hate cables...that's why almost everything I own is either BT or WiFi....my all-in-one printer is WiFi with one pwr cable coming out the back. My iMac has one pwr cable coming out the back, my keyboard and mouse are both BT....my iPhone dock is by my beside to recharge and I update it with my mac maybe once a week. My MobileMe has no cables and along with DropBox does a good job keeping everything in Sync!

I have motorola BT headphones for running with my Nike+ and iPhone...I hate the wired headphones.

My AppleTV has only two cables coming out the back connected to my large flat screen TV replaced all my 'wired' stereo system! I keep the slide show to see all my photos and usually just have one of the internet radio stations playing some light jazz in the background! It meets my music needs and photo needs!

When I get my iPad I want to place in my living room in its stand up dock and have it showing the very elegant origami slide show errr with one pwr cable coming out the back!

I'm using a Mac Mini paired with a terabyte Firewire 800 external drive and a 24" Cinema Display. The amazing part is that I got a surprising amount for my previous Mac Mini a few months ago when I traded up to the latest top-end Mini. So as much as I have toyed with the idea of going laptop for my main system, the Mini represents a great value. If I can turn over a Mini every two or three years and get good trade-in value, it means that for not much more than the cost of the latest iLife suite/OS+a new harddrive, I can keep my hardware current (well as current as it gets using a Mini). Hopefully Apple will keep updating the Mini, however modestly.

To me the iPad represents a perfect companion to a full-featured computer, whether we're talking a laptop or a desktop system like mine or yours. Less expensive than a Mac laptop, more portable, better battery life, access to tons of low-cost software. What's not to like?
