Over 600,000 iPads Sold on First Day

The iPad was finally available for retail in the U.S. over the Easter holiday, and Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray who has had much experience with Apple, noted that around 600,000 to 700,000 iPads were sold on its first day of launch.

TUAW - Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster issued a research note this morning that Apple likely sold 600-700 thousand iPads on Saturday. That's a far cry from the 200-300 thousand he originally predicted. His numbers included online pre-orders that started on March 12. It's unclear what information Munster is using for his analysis, but he does note one interesting statistic: the NYC Fifth Avenue Apple Store had 730 people in line for the iPad launch, compared to 350 for the iPhone 3GS and 540 for the iPhone 3G.

It's a bit too early to say whether the iPad is a success, considering the legitmacy of these numbers, but reviews have so far been positive and the public seems interested about this new product.
