Apple sells 2m iPads in two months
Apple claims that it has sold more than 2m iPads globally since the launch of the product on 3 April.
The iPad first started being sold in America in April and resulted in the global launch being delayed because of the huge uptake of the device.
The iPad went on sale in the UK and eight other countries on Friday and will be available in nine more countries in July.
Apple CEO, Steve Jobs said: ‘Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do. We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.’
The iPad is Apple’s newest device designed to be connected to the internet through a Wi-Fi or 3G connection. Users will be able to download apps, browse the internet, send emails and read ebooks on the iPad.
Vodafone, O2, Orange and 3 are all offering data tariffs for the device.
