We all know what an absolute juggernaut the iPad is, no matter if you're a fan of Apple, or not. But according to analyst Michael Walkley with Canaccord Genuity, Apple are already breaking their pre-order records, surprised? I'm not.

Genuity has checked with Apple's distribution channels, and the orders are already backlogged for weeks. Apple's initial stock of the third-generation iPad sold out in the first 48 hours of going on pre-order, some insane results. New orders are now taking three weeks to ship to the States, with the UK in a similar situation.

Walkley expects that Apple will sell 65.6 million iPads in 2012, which is a projected number exceeding the initial figure by an insane 10 million units. He adds that he expects Apple to sell somewhere around 90.6 million iPads in 2013, which is an increase over his previous estimated shipment total of 79.7 million.

If these figures manifest into reality, we're looking at some serious domination from Apple, where they should capture 60-percent of the overall tablet sales.
