in iPad edited January 2014
Sales of the new iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad reached 3 million total units over their launch weekend, Apple announced on Monday.

Unlike the third-generation iPad launch earlier this year, Apple just sold Wi-Fi-only models of its latest iPads, and none with cellular connectivity. The company said this weekend's sales doubled the 1.5 million Wi-Fi-only third-generation iPads sold at launch earlier this year.

Models of the new fourth-generation iPad and iPad mini with cellular connectivity are set to ship in "a few weeks." Apple did not detail separate sales figures for the iPad or iPad mini.

"Customers around the world love the new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad," said Tim Cook, Apple?s CEO. ?We set a new launch weekend record and practically sold out of iPad minis. We're working hard to build more quickly to meet the incredible demand."
