Apple Sells 3 Million iPads in 80 Days

Jeepers! This just in: An Apple press release states the company sold its three millionth iPad yesterday, just 80 days after its launch. To put this statistic in perspective, Amazon took two years to sell the same amount of Kindle units.

Analysts are going home with their tail between their legs. Most predicted much less optimistic sales numbers; Morgan Stanley‘s Katy Huberty, for example, believed 3 million units would only sell after a full quarter.

According to Business Insider, if the average sales price of an iPad and accessories was $650, this would mean that Apple just raked in $1.95 billion in revenue. Whaaaaat.
