WWDC 2011 by the numbers: 25 million iPads, 450K apps, 90K iPad apps, $2.5 billion to devs,

We're covering WWDC 2011 live! And along with WWDC always comes facts and figures. Here's an interesting one - Apple has sold over 25 million iPads in the past 14 months. This figure includes the original iPad and the iPad 2.

Developers have created over 90,000 applications just for iPad since its initial launch. And with it came over $2.5B in money paid out to developers. Yes, we said that right, billions.

This obviously includes all iOS platforms (iPad, iPhone, iPod). For many light users, the iPad has succeeded in replacing their personal computer.

How many of you use your iPad as your main device? Does this number surprise you at all?
