Monthly sales of Apple’s new iPad device have been rising steadily over the past several months, prompting the electronics maker to adopt a second supplier of 9.7-inch display panels in anticipation of strong fourth quarter sales that could top 6 million.
The Cupertino-based company is now producing 1.2 million iPads each month, up from 800,000-900,000 units in May, 700,000 units in April, 470,000 units in March, and 300,000 in February.
More crazy big iPad sales numbers from a report in Apple Insider. It also mentions that according to one group of researchers, sales may shoot up to 2.5 million units a month by this year’s holiday season. Not bad for a device that many thought was over-hyped and trying to slot into a space in the market that just didn’t exist.
