iPad Sales May Hit 1 Million Within 2 Weeks of Shipping

iPad Sales May Hit 1 Million Within 2 Weeks of Shipping

Daniel Tello, a blogger-analyst who has been tracking order numbers submitted by volunteers at Investor Village's AAPL Sanity board, estimates that the iPad will see sales of one million by the second week after it ships.

"With three weeks and two weekends left before they ship, I wouldn't expect much more than half a million in pre-orders and reservations," he says.

"My best guess, although very tentative given the early stage and few data we have so far, would be that they hit the 1 million unit milestone by the second week after it ships," he told Fortune. "But this is a very speculative guesstimate based on just a weekend of pre-orders."

Tello reports approximately 120,000 first-day sales which should slow to 30,000 per weekday and half that on weekends.

The iPhone took 74 days to reach 1 million in sales. If the iPad can do this in 14 days it would be a tremendous achievement.

I will be waiting for the Lenovo pad or even better, the Courier. Buying this would be a waste of money.

That's disgusting manipulation of numbers. "the iphoen took 74 days if the ipad could take 14 days..." 14 days? That's not counting the preorder which the original iphone (and they must be talking about the original in that statement) didn't have preorders nor did it have the same launching platform the ipad has (which is the iphone). All number manipulation to make people think we all want one. Nonsense.

What do you care if they sell a million within 2 weeks or not? The iPad will be around for awhile even if you don't buy one.

The iPad will only be around as long as dumb people keep trying to be cool and be first instead of paying money for cheap, non-innovating products.
