Apple Says 2 Million iPads Sold In Under 60 days

Apple sells 2 million in iPads in less than 2 months - or 33 thousand iPads sold a day.

Apple announced that it has sold over two million iPads, in less than 60 days since the tablet became available in early April. The news comes less than one week after Apple unleashed the iPad to nine international markets last Friday, in Europe, Canada, Japan and Australia.

The iPad first became available on April 3, and reportedly one million devices sold in 28 days, on May 3. Another 28 days later, the company reported two million iPads sold.

All the iPad models, WiFi-only and WiFi+3G are now available not only in the U.S., but also in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K.

In Apple's announcement, the company's CEO Steve Jobs said: "Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do."

Touching on the reported iPad shortages both in the U.S. and across the world, Jobs said: "We appreciate [customers'] patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone."

Apple also gave a brief update on iPad apps, saying there are now over 5,000 apps designed especially for the tablet.

iPad will be available in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
