Apple cracks 2 million iPads sold

Jobs asks 'patience' in light of supply problems

Apple has already sold over 2 million iPads so far, the company said on Monday. The catalyst appears to have been the international launch of the device, which this weekend brought it to countries like Canada, France, Japan and the United Kingdom. Apple also makes a point of noting that the iPad is less than 60 days old. Though likely not evenly, this translates into about a million tablets per month.

The company further observes that there are now roughly 5,000 iPad apps amongst the more than 200,000 overall titles on the App Store. CEO Steve Jobs is apologizing for ongoing supply problems, which have seen many Apple Stores and other outlets going without stock.

"We appreciate their [the public's] patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone," Jobs said in a prepared statement.

    Compare...

    How do these sales figures compare to the Courier, Slate, Joo Joo, Streak, Latitude XT2, etc?

    Oh wait...

    As a rough estimate, I'd say the comparison

    would be about at least 2,000,000 to 0. Not bad for a product that was claimed no one was going to buy since it was merely an oversized iPhone/Touch. The people that said that might have been descendants of those that said the Earth was flat.
