Wow!  I love my iPad2, and it works so well for me, I can’t justify upgrading anytime soon.  However, it sounds like millions of other people couldn’t wait to get the New iPads in their hands this past weekend.

Information Weekly has the details:


Apple revealed late Monday that it sold more than three million iPads worldwide between Friday, March 16 and Monday, March 19. The new iPad went on sale in the United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

“The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold–the strongest iPad launch yet,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior VP 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.”

Three million new iPads in four days is no doubt impressive. Apple said that the new iPad had a record weekend, and now we have the numbers to back that claim up. AT&T also said that it saw a record number of new iPad activations on its network.


Did you or anyone you know grab the new iPad last week?
