Apple sells two millionth iPad in under 60 days

Following the initial international release of the iPad this past weekend, Apple has announced that it has sold over two million iPads—a milestone reached in “less than 60 days,” according to the company. “Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do,” read a press release quoting Apple CEO Steve Jobs. “We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”

The release comes at a time when iPad sell-outs are common throughout the United States, which saw separate launches of the iPad with Wi-Fi and iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G in April. While the iPad with Wi-Fi was widely available in Apple Stores following its debut, waiting lines developed at Apple Stores soon thereafter as demand began to exceed supply, and have continued in certain parts of the country for weeks. Apple Stores now take non-binding reservations for iPad hardware, and suggest ordering online for fastest fulfillment, which takes between one and two weeks from the date of order.

So much for the fad many predicted.  I have three thus far in my family, with more coming for the kids in college.
Once textbooks become more widely available, it will skyrocket.
I’ve not had a single crash or other issue, and the battery life is amazing, and makes the weight worth it.
I only wish Apple would stop with the “magical” bit.  It’s just not needed, and honestly, sounds dopey.
