Question: What Are iPad Sales All Time?

There's no question that the iPad is the dominant tablet computer on the market, but you only get a true picture of how dominant it is when you see how many have been sold, and how quickly those sales have grown.

 

Answer:

As with many of its recent products, the iPad was a hit from its introduction. Its first weekend saw long lines that eventually led to short-term supply shortages. Needless to say, it was a success.

Exactly how much of a success can be measured by iPad sales. Apple releases these figures periodically (usually around its quarterly financial reports). This list tracks the dates and totals of Apple's announcements of iPad sales (sales figures are cumulative sales all time, not for a specific period) and is approximate.
