Apple sells 2 million iPads in under 2 months

Apple iPad logoApple said Monday that iPad sales have topped two million in less than 60 days since it first launched in the U.S. on April 3.

Word of the milestone comes just days after the Cupertino-based company expanded sales of the device to international markets, shipping units in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.

“Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do,” said Apple chief executive Steve Jobs. “We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”

In April, Apple announced that it would delay international availability of the iPad by roughly a month's time after the company discovered that domestic demand for the device was far outpacing its estimates.

The company initially sold 500,000 iPad's during the device's first week on the market. That number doubled three weeks later when Apple announced on May 3rd that it had shipped its millionth unit.

On average, Apple would appear to be selling just over 35,700 iPads each day and the company boasts a catalog of over 5,000 new applications for the touch-screen device that have been authored by its developer community.

Apple also said Monday that the iPad will be available in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.
