Philip Schiller, senior vice president of product marketing for the Cupertino firm, said the launch of the new tablet has been the most successful online iPad so far.
According to figures released by Apple, in just three days have already been sold over 3 million units of the new iPad, offered for sale in 10 countries on 16 March. Philip Schiller, senior vice president of product marketing for the company said the launch of the tablet has been "the most successful online iPad so far."
These data are corroborated by just making a tour of the Apple numbers. The first version of the iPad did not reach 3 million units sold until after 80 days of its release. In turn, the iPhone 4, one of the most successful gadgets of the Cupertino firm, had sales of 1.7 million units within 3 days after launch.
These figures not only confirm the momentum of the company run by Tim Cook, who just closed the most successful quarter in its history, selling 15.43 million iPads around the world.
Apple, now considered the world's most valuable company by market capitalization in excess of 560,000 million dollars, will launch its new tablet in 24 countries on 23 March. These include Spain and Mexico, the only Spanish-speaking countries where, for the moment, the signing of the apple will release the new iPad.
