Apple sells 3 million iPads in new launch
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Apple said on Monday it sold three million iPads in the first three days of its launch of the iPad mini and fourth-generation model of its original format iPad.
The tech giant said demand for iPad mini "exceeded the initial supply," meaning some orders will be delayed until later this month.
Apple did not break down precise sales of the mini - the 20cm tablet which joins several other small-format tablets - and the new iPad, which has a 25cm screen.
"Customers around the world love the new iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad," said Mr Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, in a statement.
