91,000 iPads Pre-Ordered in 6 Hours?
iPad pre-orders went live at 5:30am PT, 8:30am ET and in the 6 hours that follow, Fortune relays that Apple has moved 91,000 of the magical and revolutionary new devices. (50,000 in the first 2 hours!)
The estimates are based on a bunch of impatient investors on the AAPL Sanity Board inputing and tracking order numbers via Google Spreadsheets. Even if they're not spot on accurate, they show a good amount of movement for a device many dismissed right out of the gate.
TUAW meanwhile is hearing in-store reservations for iPad Wi-Fi is 41,000.
What do you think, are those good numbers for Steve Job's most important product launch? Were you expecting more, less?
