Nearly 12,000 iPad 2s were sold on eBay in the two weeks between the device’s U.S. launch and its initial international rollout. Cnet reports that somewhat surprisingly, two-thirds of those—8,000 units—were sold inside of the United States, compared to just 35 percent for the first-generation iPad. The two largest export locations were Russia and Canada, followed by Hong Kong, Japan, and the U.K. The 16GB Wi-Fi model was the most popular, selling for an average price of $697, followed by the 64GB 3G model, which brought in $1,235 on average, a $406 premium over the retail price.

Wait…you can actually ship them to Russia? I checked with USPS and FedEx, but was told that I wouldn’t be able to insure the package as they only do a maximum value of $250US.

I wouldn’t have done it without insurance or delivery confirmation, as I could imagine some customs official claiming the package was ‘lost.’

I was also part of that statistic- bought a 32gb Wifi model a week afterwards. Nice guy.

Now to find a way to sell this 16gb AT&T model and try to recoup the extra money I paid for the 32gb.
