Apple: Three Million iPads Sold in Three Days

 Seen here are the Apple iPhone 5, iPad Mini and the first gen-iPad.

Apple just announced that it has sold three million iPads in just three days after the launch of the iPad Mini and fourth generation iPad. This is double the previous first weekend sales of 1.5 million Wi-Fi models of the third generation iPad in March.

“Customers around the world love the new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We set a new launch weekend record and practically sold out of iPad minis. We're working hard to build more quickly to meet the incredible demand.”

As a point of reference, Apple received two million pre-orders for the iPhone 5 in the first 24 hours and subsequently sold five million units within three days of its launch. The coming weeks should see more sales of the both iPads as the Wi-Fi + Cellular models will start shipping in the U.S and many other countries.

It will be interesting to see if Apple can maintain its sales momentum in the near future as it faces off with an onslaught of Windows 8 tablets and soaring sales of Google Nexus 7. If you want to find out more about the Apple iPad Mini, do check out our review of the device.
