iPad sales hit the 1 million mark in less than a month

Apple iPadIn less than one month, Apple has already sold more than 1 million iPads. The company has announced that it reached the milestone on Friday after the launch of the iPad WiFi + 3G in the US.

"One million iPads in 28 days—that's less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone," said Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a statement. "Demand continues to exceed supply and we're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers."

Supply is indeed tight—many Apple Stores were out of stock of 3G-enabled iPads by Saturday afternoon, though Best Buy locations outside major population centers still had some stock left. Shortly after launch, tight supply and greater than expected demand caused Apple to push the international launch of the iPad back about one month to late May.

Apple also noted that, in the last month, iPad users have downloaded more than 12 million apps from the App Store and over 1.5 million e-books from the iBookstore. There are now over 5,000 apps designed specifically for the iPad among the over 200,000 currently on offer in the App Store.
