Apple’s Fifth Avenue store sold 13,000 new iPads in 12 hours, or 18 per minute. However, that is just a tiny sliver of the 3 million new iPads sold worldwide since launch, which was the 16th of March (just last Friday). How are these numbers so amazing? The original iPad took 80 days to sell 3 million units. Very impressive, Tim Cook and Co.; press release after the break.
