Apple Announces Huge iPad Sales Numbers

During their quarterly earnings call yesterday Apple announced some staggeringly impressive numbers for the iPad. For starters, they sold 9.25 million iPads last quarter – that’s a crazy, huge number in its own right.

Here’s a few more numbers and facts that caught my eye:

— The iPad number for the quarter was up 183% over last year.

— The iPad outsold the iPod (all models combined) and more than doubled the sales of Macs.

— iPads are now on sale in 64 countries, after launching in 36 new ones during the quarter.

— 86 percent of Fortune 500 companies are now deploying or testing the iPad.

Apple are still selling iPads as fast as they can build them, but Tim Cook (Apple’s COO) stated that he is confident that they can ramp up production to meet demand.

More than 9 million iPads sold in a non-holiday quarter seems hugely impressive to me, especially with all the new competitor tablets that have launched this year.
