According to Analysts, the iPad is expected to sell more than 5 million copies if it continues at this rate by the holiday season. "We appreciate [consumers'] patience and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone," Steve Jobs declared after getting word of this achievement. Jobs is very hopeful for the iPad, and there is speculation that large iPhone sales may cause the iPad to sell even more.
Even the elderly are using the iPad. One man, 66, after being interviewed when he bought his iPad, proclaimed: "The iPad is instant, needs no warm-up time and is really user-friendly." Clearly, the iPad is getting out to everyone. In the long run, one of the primary reasons iPads are being purchased is because of their low price tag, which people highlight more than Macintosh computer prices. Whatever the cause may be for this huge sale, Jobs says: "It's the netbook of the future, and Apple is leading the market." Someday, the iPad may even be bigger than the iPod. We will have to wait and see.
