3 Million iPad 3 Tablets Sold in 3 Days
Apple is feeling very good today as their stock price soared over $600 per shared and they announced that they have sold three million of the new iPad 3 devices. The new iPad 3 went on sale on Friday, March 16. People pre-ordered at record levels and waited in lines to grab the 3rd generation release. This new iPad 3 comes with the new Retina Display, A5X chip, a new iSight camera, and 4G LTE capabilities on certain models. Three million iPad 3’s sold marks a big milestone for Apple especially since the iPad 3 only went on sale three days ago. And remember that it took a full month for Apple to hit the one million mark for the first-generation iPad.
The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold―the strongest iPad launch yet,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Customers are loving the incredible new features of iPad, including the stunning Retina display, and we can’t wait to get it into the hands of even more customers around the world this Friday.
