300,000 iPads Sold On Day One

Posted on 05. Apr, 2010 by in Tech News

There were some pretty high numbers being talked about for the first day of sales for Apple and it’s latest innovation, the iPad.  This morning set the record straight regarding sales numbers.  According to the press release on their site they sold right at 300,000 iPads on the first day.  This number is well short of the estimated 700,000 but it is not a number to look down at.  There were also an estimated 1,000,000 apps sold along with 250,000 ebooks from the iBookstore sold on Saturday alone.  Not too shabby Apple, not too shabby at all.

For those of you who have an iPad, what do you think?  Does it live up to the hype or is it a flop?  For those who didn’t get one on day one, are you leaning towards getting one or dead set against it?  Sound off below.
