Even though I did not get an iPad over the weekend, there were plenty who did! According to Apple, the iPad sales that included retail iPad at Bestbuy and Apple Stores went over 300,000 units as of midnight Sunday the 4th March 2010..
The first iPhone was not able to sell that many units. But the third coming of the iPhone, iPhone 3GS managed to sell more than 1 million units over othe initial weekend.
"iPad users, on average, downloaded more than three apps and close to one book within hours of unpacking their new iPad." said Steve Jobs, speaking about opening of iPad sales.TAL via engadget
