In just 28 days, between April 3 – April 30, Apple sold one million iPads, the Cupertino company announced, "One million iPads in 28 days -- that's less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone," said oft-quoted Apple CEO Steve Jobs. "Demand continues to exceed supply and we're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers." Twenty-eight days, however, may not be an accurate figure. When Apple announced its first day iPad sales exceeded 300,000 units, the company took into account all of the pre-orders which began coming in on March 12. If this is the case with today's figures, Apple actually counted 49 days worth of sales.
