More amazing iPad pre-order and pre-sales numbers being reported at the end of this week. Numbers and things that stand out:
- Close to 250,000 pre-orders
- Guesstimates of roughly the same amount of in-store pickup reservations.
- The fact that these estimates do not even include orders from enterprise, schools, or small businesses. I imagine their may well be quite significant iPad interest in those last two sectors at least.
I think these numbers – if they end up being even close to accurate – are just one of a growing number of signs that the iPad is going to be another big hit for Apple.
