After it was announced back in January, the Apple iPad seemed like it could be the company’s first major clunker in a long time. However, two months after its release in the US, the iPad is far from being a flop. In a latest online statement, Apple has announced it has achieved sales of 2 million iPads in less than 60 days. The hugely debated iPad has shattered sales records already.
Currently iPad ships to just a few countries in the world which include Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Sales are expected to rise even more when nine more countries are added in July and more later this year.
Dubbed as an expensive niche product lying between a smart phone and a laptop without eliminating the need of either one, overwhelming response from customers has surely silenced the critics of iPad. Apple, of course acknowledges the high demand for its iPad with Steve Jobs saying, “We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”
