Apple iPad 3, the latest gadget from Apple is selling in the market like hot cake. It has already crossed the mark of selling more than 3 million units in just 3 days.
The new iPad from Apple – the Apple iPad 3 boasts of having retina display. It is equipped with A5X dual core processor. It also has a quad core graphics processor. It has support for 4G and has a better battery life when compared to the Apple iPad 2.
But when compared to iPad 2, it is heavier and thicker. This gain in weight and thickness have no effect on customers as we have seen the massive sales of the new iPad 3. It is one of the strongest iPads ever launched by the company. In words of Philip Schiller, who is the senior vice president of Apple, ” The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold – the strongest iPad launch yet“.
An interesting thing to note about this sales figure is that, the sales is just because of the 12 countries where Apple iPad 3 has already been launched. On March 24, the iPad 3 would be launching in another 24 countries. The sales figure, after the launch in these 24 counties, would shoot up dramatically.
In the coming weeks, more iPads would be sold worldwide and the stock which is currently stocked in the retail shops would soon be emptied and fresh demand for iPad 3 would arise.
In the UK, the new iPad 3 with a base of 16 GB Wi-Fi only model is available for £399, while the model with a base of 64 GB, Wi-Fi and 4G capable is available for a price of £659. The Apple iPad 3 is not a cheap product but still it is able to sell out huge quantities throughout the world. This shows the brand loyalty and the fan following that Apple has created for itself.
