Apple Sells One Million iPads

It’s official: Apple has sold one million iPads as of last Friday. According to Apple CEO Steve Jobs, the company sold one million iPads in half as much time as it took for one million iPhones to be sold, which is very impressive indeed.

Apple also said that users have downloaded 1.5 million iBooks and over 12 million apps from the App Store. There are 5,000 iPad-specific apps in the App Store. The top-selling apps are Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, all Apple’s answer to Microsoft Office. The games Pinball, Real Racing HD, and Scrabble also remain top-selling apps.

Jobs also said that the demand for the iPad continues to exceed the supply, which is why Apple delayed the international release of the iPad (and why Apple stores sold out of iPads this weekend when the iPad 3G was released).
