So how many iPads did Apple sell up till now? The current estimate stands at 120,000 on its first day. The general trend shows that the WiFi (non-3G) edition sold more than 2X times the more expensive WiFi+3G edition. But when it came to memory capacity, the sales were evenly distributed. All 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB models were sold in almost equal numbers.
In case you are not aware who Martin Cooper is, then let’s just say he is the principal inventor of hand held mobile phones/cellphones. Obviously he loves all the latest cellphones in the market and tries to check them all out. In a recent interview with C-SPAN he admits using the Motorola Droid. Guess what was his previous phone? The iPhone; which he gave it to his grandson.
It seems that almost 50,000 iPads were sold in just two hours from Apple.com. Although this number is not yet concrete, it was reported that two iPads ordered 30 minutes apart “reflected Order IDs that were about 10,000 apart”. That’s massive! At this rate the number of sales might even surpass a few hundred thousand by the end of the day.
Just when iPad starts appearing for pre-order, rumors about the next iPhone OS version 4.0 surfaces. AppleInsider revealed that as per their ‘reliable’ sources the iPhone 4.0 may feature true multi-tasking. From a UI perspective it seems Apple will introduce a multi-tasking manager that will control the multiple apps. But the OS is far from complete, and will need to undergo several rounds of development before it is even ready for testing.
