Posted Nov 5, 2012

Apple Inc. announced that they have sold 3 million iPads in only 3 days.  This includes the fourth generation iPad and the iPad Mini.  The milestone is double the previous first weekend milestone where 1.5 million WiFi only models sold for the third-generation iPad this past March.  Apple will start shipping the Wi-Fi + Cellular versions of the iPad Mini and fourth generation iPad in a few weeks in the United States and more countries later this year.

?Customers around the world love the new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad,? said Tim Cook, Apple?s CEO. ?We set a new launch weekend record and practically sold out of iPad minis. We’re working hard to build more quickly to meet the incredible demand.?
