Early reports suggest that Apple has sold most of its first run of international iPad shipments, which has lead one analyst to predict that the iPad will outsell the Mac internationally this quarter.
Mike Abramsky with RBC Capital Markets said Friday that he believes between 600,000 and 700,000 iPads will be sold overseas in June, though the number could go even higher. If that forecast is accurate, it would well exceed the 500,000 Macs expected to be sold in June.
Impressive numbers, if they prove to be accurate – especially as the article goes on to point out that the iPad is still not available in 78 out of 88 countries where the iPhone is.
Abramsky is also quoted as saying he thinks Apple will ramp up production to compensate for initial supply shortages, and predicts sales of 8.1 million iPads in 2010.
