iPad sales still going strong

Written by


Three million and counting
It appears that Apple has managed to sell more than 3 million iPads since the launch some three months ago.

The overpriced keyboardless netbook was introduced stateside in March, but the rest of the world had to wait for a few more weeks due to supply issues. For example, the 3G version went on sale in Europe just a few weeks ago.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs believes consumers love the iPad because it easily becomes a part of their daily lives, whatever that’s supposed to mean. Jobs claims Apple is working hard to bring the iPad to more consumers in more regions.

However, consumers in less affluent markets might not be as keen to make the iPad “a part of their daily lives” like their EU and US counterparts. The pricing is still nothing short of ridiculous and the competition is gearing up to launch much cheaper tablets with similar specs. Also,  people in less developed countries are not smug enough to buy Apple.

"The overpriced keyboardless netbook was introduced stateside in March" - you are really not afraid to speak the painful truth.

Keep it up guys. The geek community supports you!

Can't believe Apple has stupid enough fanboys to buy this expensive piece of junk.
