Apple today announced that it has sold 3 million new iPads over the opening weekend. The total number of sales include the iPad mini and the fourth-generation iPad.
Analysts estimate that roughly 2.3 million of the reported sales were of the iPad mini, surpassing early estimates of 1 million to 1.5 million units. This means that the larger 9.7-inch fourth-generation iPad sales reached an estimate of 700 thousand units. It looks like Apple’s iPad mini got a pretty good start for the holidays.
