It took 28 days to sell 1-millionth iPad

Apple confirms 1-millionth iPad sold, 28 days after launch, compared to 3 days it took iPhone 3G to reach 1M units sold

The California-based computer giant, Apple, today announced new sales figures for it’s latest device, the Apple iPad.

The company says it has now sold more than 1-million units of the device, 28-days after the initial April 3rd product launch that saw 300,000 sold units on launch date.

The sales numbers do not include sales figures from the iPad 3G model, which debuted today in the United States.

The iPad will launch in international markets, including Canada, by the end of this month.

Apple’s iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS both took a mere 3-days each from their debut to reach the 1-million sales milestone, compared to 74-days for the very first iPhone model.

Apple says there are currently more than 5,000 apps designed specifically for the iPad, with more than 12-million apps aggregately being downloaded from all iPad users. The company says more than 1.5-million iBook ebooks have been also been downloaded, but that number isn’t more specific to indicate how many books have been purchased from Apple’s new iBook store.

Apple chief executive Steve Jobs says demand remains strong and that the company is working hard to meet demand as it exceeds current supply levels.

The  market has reacted positively to the news as the Apple stock (NASDAQ:AAPL) is trading up 2.25-percent in mid-day trading at $266.97 per share.

Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Irrespective of family history, everyone is exposed to the risk. About 90% of colon cancer cases begin from non-cancerous tumors, polyps, which could form in the large bowel. Screening with a colonoscopy will painlessly remove any polyps hence almost entirely reducing your risk of developing the horrible disease. The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
