NEW FIRST DAY SALES RECORD FOR APPLE: THE IPAD BEATS THE IPHONE NUMBERS

Files under General | Apr 4th

Getting ready for iPad

If you read the news dispatch from EFE, the Spanish news agency, the sales of the iPad were lower than the iPhone ones.

Well this reporter and his editors must live in an imaginary world.

The buzz of the new iPad has been bigger and louder than any other Apple product ever.

Ask Microsoft.

Ask Google.

Ask Nokia.

Ask Nintendo.

Ask Sony.

They know better than the lousy EFE report.

A better and more factual account comes here:

“Piper Jaffray Senior Research Analyst, Gene Munster, originally projected first day iPad sales to between 250 to 300,000.

After spending some time at the Apple store on Fifth Avenue in New York City on Saturday morning, that number was increaded to between 600 to 700,000.

These numbers are based on 730 customers being counted at that particular store, and compares to 350 at the same location for the iPhone 3G S launch, and 540 for the iPhone 3G.”

    How is that “factual”? What kind of hard evidence is that? Random numbers of visitors from just ONE store?

    Oh, and by the way, he got it wrong:
    http://techcrunch.com/2010/04/05/ipad-day-in-numbers-300k-devices-sold-1-million-apps-and-250k-ibooks-downloaded/

    Apple itself said that it sold 300k iPads on the first day including channel partners. That means stock for stores, so a lot less people actually owned an iPad on that first day of sales.

    It’s still 30k units “sold” more than the iPhone on its first day, but way less than the imaginary world 700.000 figure.
