Apple: 300K iPads Sold, Million App Downloads

About 30 minutes ago Apple put out its release:

Apple today announced that it sold over 300,000 iPads in the US as of midnight Saturday, April 3. These sales included deliveries of pre-ordered iPads to customers, deliveries to channel partners and sales at Apple Retail Stores. Apple also announced that iPad users downloaded over one million apps from Apple’s App Store and over 250,000 ebooks from its iBookstore during the first day.

These are strong numbers but less than the increasing numbers put out over the weekend, which I had believed too (600 to 700K). By comparison, Apple sold one million of iPhone 3GS devices during the first three days of that phone’s launch. The original iPhone sold one million in 74 days. For the launch of the 3G version the handset’s price was basically cut in half.

The iPad has outperformed the original iPhone. But a price cut and/or the addition of new features in a iPad 2 will likely result in a similar bounce for sales. As of March 16 there were 135K Nexus One handsets sold, according to various reports.
