Apple: 3M in combined iPad mini, fourth-gen iPad sales

updated 08:57 am EST, Mon November 5, 2012

Sales split kept quiet

Apple has announced sales of three million iPads over the launch weekend for the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad. The amount is said to be double the number achieved during the third-gen iPad's launch, but Apple isn't breaking down Mini sales versus fourth-gen ones, making it difficult to judge the success of either product. Both tablets launched in 34 countries, casting an unusually wide net for an iPad release.

Only Wi-Fi models are shipping to start with; Apple is promising that 3G/4G-equipped versions will arrive "in a few weeks in the US," and "in many more countries later this year." A prepared statement from Apple CEO Tim Cook adds that the company has "practically sold out" of the Mini, but that it's working to make supply meet demand.

    To make their bottomline seem bigger, they might want to keep things cumulative for an added psyche effect on public & investors, after all.... holding on to hype is tough for the long term... :lol:
