People who doubted the ability of New iPad to succeed in the market would be shocked to know that Apple's third generation iPad is by far it's fastest selling tablet of all times. The company has revealed that it sold a record number of 3 million New iPad units during the first weekend.
Currently the New iPad is being sold in 10 countries which include US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland, UK and the US Virgin Islands. Shipments and retail store sales began from March 16.
The New iPad has retained all of it's previous prices, which is one major factor why people who own iPad 2 are making up their minds to buy a New iPad. Both of these tablets look exactly the same, and that is why many people doubted the third generation iPad's ability to succeed in the market. Things are turning out to be on the contrary, however.
Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing Phil Schiller said in a press release:
The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold―the strongest iPad launch yet. Customers are loving the incredible new features of iPad, including the stunning Retina display, and we can't wait to get it into the hands of even more customers around the world this FridayStarting March 23, the New iPad will be available in another 24 countries. Despite the fact that New iPad has no design changes, it is still proving to be a success just because of the amazing advancements Apple has made in the technology inside the device itself.
