Apple's iPad is popular. While this is not exactly news, the data shown that Apple's iPad is selling 200,000 units a week while Macs are only pacing 110,000 a week is. The new tablet is outselling the rest of the Mac lineup combined and nipping at the heels of the 245,000 units per week the iPhone are garnering according to a report by RBC Capital Markets analyst Mike Abramsky.

 

"Checks indicate that US iPad sales remain strong post-launch, driven by rising consumer visibility to iPad's user experience, sustained PR/word-of-mouth marketing, 3G iPad launch, and broadening iPad apps/content," Abramsky stated in a note to his clients. The strong sales which have the iPad sold ut in many Apples stores and Best Buy locations with people on waiting lists to get a hold of the iPad have made analysts increase their fugures of iPad sales in 2010 to exceed 8 million from the 5-6 million previously expected.

 

With the Australian and European launch coming on May 28th, the demand for the already hard to find iPad may reach epic proportions. Hopefully Apple can get these rolling out faster with a worldwide market coming soon.
