Apple has announced that it sold 3 million iPads over the week-end (including Friday) – since it launched the iPad Mini and the iPad 4.
While the company doesn’t specifically say this, I assume most of those 3 million tablets sold were iPad Mini units.
Both the iPad Mini (pictured below) and the 4th generation “big” iPad were launched on November 2 in no less than 34 countries around the world.
The iPad Mini is, as you already know, the cheapest iPad ever – prices start at $329 (16GB Wi-Fi-only version). Still, that doesn’t allow it to properly compete with other popular tablets, like the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kinde Fire, which cost $199. Even so, it looks like the Mini is a success. It will be interesting to see exactly how many units are going to be sold until the end of the year.
