Analyst: Two-thirds of Apple's three million new iPad sales were iPad minis

An analyst has predicted that Apple has sold two million iPad minis since its launch last week

An analyst has predicted that Apple has sold two million iPad minis since its launch last week.

Apple on Monday announced that it had sold three million iPads during the three days since the launch of the iPad mini and iPad 4, but the company didn't specify separate numbers for the two devices.

"We estimate that two-thirds, or 2 million plus, of the units [were] iPad minis," analyst Brian Marshall from ISI Group said in a note to clients.

Marshall predicts that Apple will sell a total of five million iPad mini units this quarter, aided by the release of the WiFi plus 4G models which are set to arrive within the next few weeks, although no specific date has been announced yet.

Research has found that Apple has sold out of 16GB iPad mini models in most stores, and there is limited stock of the 32GB and 64GB models left. Many customers who pre-ordered the iPad mini have been left waiting, as Apple works to meet the demand for the device.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
