Apple has reported earlier today that it has sold one million iPad in 28 days, comparing this with the 74 days that it took to sell a million iPhones. Earlier this month, Apple has delayed the international launch, citing supply constraints.
For sure, the device has been selling much better than skeptics had predicted and overall, it is a very interesting device (read our iPad review), but it also arrives in a much different world than the one in which the original iPhone was born: there are now tens of thousands of apps, and the eco-system is much bigger than it used to be then. Of course, selling that many iPad is very impressive, and looking at how lucrative the black market is (I saw a lot of iPads selling for about 2x the price in Hong Kong) I can predict that the international launch is likely to be a success as well.
