iPad: 2 million sold in less than 60 days

Apple announced on Monday that in less than two months 2 million iPads have been sold. On May 28th the iPad had it's international launch in  Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Large queues were reported in Australia, Japan and the UK with people waiting for up to 30 hours before they got their hands on their beloved iPads. 

Steve Jobs had this to say “Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”

When the iPad first launched we had written an article which said that the iPad could be a boon for third world countries and could be used for education in distant and remote areas. Places that are hard to reach for medical aid could also benefit from the iPad it is easy to cart around and comes with great battery life. In addition it does not cost too much and can be easily transported. 

The Apps available are amazing and there is at least one App available for every user's needs.   Apple we bet would like to make one iPad for every individual in the world and the success of this would depend entirely on the Apps as this is what makes the iPad a success. Since high end computing is quiet limited on the iPad the Apps make up for whatever short comings critics throw at the iPad. It is selling and it is here to stay.
