3 Million New iPads Sold In 3 Days

5 November 2012

Apple:

Apple® today announced it has sold three million iPads in just three days since the launch of its new iPad® mini and fourth generation iPad — double the previous first weekend milestone of 1.5 million Wi-Fi only models sold for the third generation iPad in March. The Wi-Fi + Cellular versions of both iPad mini and fourth generation iPad will ship in a few weeks in the US and in many more countries later this year.

Assumedly, most of those sales are iPad mini’s. And yet, I don’t think the Mini is anywhere near its peak sales for the year. The holiday season hasn’t quite started yet. Parents buying these things for Christmas probably haven’t done so yet … I think the Christmas market for the Mini is going to be massive.

Oh, and also, the 3G Mini’s haven’t even shipped yet.
