iPad builds Rome in a day
Apple has sold over 300,000 iPads in the US in the product’s first day.
The figure includes pre-order deliveries, channel partner deliveries and retail store sales.
iPad users downloaded over one million apps and 250,000 ebooks from the new iBookstore in the first day.
“It feels great to have the iPad launched into the world—it’s going to be a game changer,” said Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple. “iPad users, on average, downloaded more than three apps and close to one book within hours of unpacking their new iPad.”
