New Apple iPad scores record sales in first weekend of availability

At its dividend and share buyback conference Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the iPad had a record opening weekend, sales-wise.

No specific numbers were quoted, but the iPad 2 opening weekend sales were said to be in the region of 1 million units, so now we are obviously looking at numbers higher than that.

Of course, that’s hardly a surprise given the rapid increase in popularity that tablets in general are enjoying and the fact the the new Apple iPad had the widest initial availability of all Apple slates. 12 countries got the new iPad at launch day, whereas the original iPad and the iPad 2 were US-exclusives initially.
