First weekend of iPad 3G U.S. sales a near complete sell-out

Around 300,000 units sold in two days

Whilst the first round of iPad availability in the WiFi-only version resulted in astonishing sales; over 300,000 in the U.S. alone during the first 24 hours, it seems a hell of a lot more people were keen to hold out for the 3G version.




Since the iPad 3G hit the market last Friday, by Sunday afternoon it was estimated that around 300,000 of these were sold (though that figure includes 22 days of preorders). This isn't quite the level of sales we saw when the first round of iPads came out, but it's certainly still a highly successful one.


The estimated 300,000 sales figure comes from Piper Jaffray analyst, Gene Munster. In contacting 50 Apple stores on the Sunday afternoon, it was also learned that 49 of these were completely sold out of iPad 3Gs! Looking at the big picture, Munster has calculated that Apple has now sold more than a million iPads in total.
