Apple Sells Over 300,000 iPads First Day

Apple has revealed today that they have sold more than 300,000 iPad tablet computers through midnight April 3. Sales included deliveries of pre-ordered iPads to customers, deliveries to channel partners and sales at Apple retail stores. The iPad retails from $499 and up, depending on hard drive space. It should also be noted that iPad users have downloaded close to more than 1 million apps from Appleā€™s App Store and more than 250,000 e-books from its iBookstore during the first day.

Here some simple calculations i made just for fun. If you multiply the $499 price tag of the iPad times the 300,000 sold, that equals over $150,000,000 made. Of course some of that money is void because of various costs (production & marketing) but its still fun to look at.

It will be interesting to see how sales will pick up from here through the rest of the year. Is the iPad yet another great success of a device from Apple?

    Based on these figures so far, I would say yes. These figures definitely put to rest the question of our weekly poll. The iPad is a success, period.

    Let the flaming begin….

    “iPad users have downloaded close to more than 1 million apps”

    does that mean its less than 1 million? or just 1 million?
