iPad results at iPhone 4.0 event

As part of the iPhone 4.0 sneak preview event today, Steve Jobs announced some numbers about iPad sell-through to date (meaning Saturday to Thursday):

  • 450,000 iPads were sold. Best Buy was out of stock and Apple Retail was selling them as fast as they could get them.
  • 600,000 iBooks downloaded (which includes free Project Gutenberg titles, no doubt).
  • 3.5 million iPad apps download (ditto free apps).

Initial surge and early adoption or not, all in less than a week on the market has to be termed a success.
