Wow.  A tech analyst has upped his predictions for first day sales of the iPad – to an incredible 600-700,000 units.  Just for a quick comparison point, the original iPhone sold 270,000 on Day 1. 

Piper Jaffrey tech analyst Gene Munster yesterday revised his initial single-day sales predictions for Apple’s iPad by as much as 250%. Prior to the iPads launch, Munster had expected Apple to sell 200,000 to 300,000 units (including pre-orders) within the first 24 hours. But after a bit more research and watching some 730 people flowing in and out of Apple’s 5th Avenue shop in New York City, Munster revised his estimate to a whopping 600,000 to 700,000 units sold.

If those numbers are even close to accurate, that’s just scary big success.  I don’t think there can be much doubt that Apple has another massive hit on its hands.  Everything I saw and heard yesterday ties in with this as well.  There were healthy lines of people with iPads reserved and walk-in buyers at every local store that I know of.

Anyone want to bet on whether they sell one million in the opening weekend?
