Today, on stage at the iPad 2 event in San Francisco, Steve Jobs kicked things off with some big numbers. Jobs announced that, Apple had sold 100 million iPhones. They also announced an official figure of 15 million iPads sold, which is about what estimates have been, and as Steve noted, "That's more than every tablet PC ever sold."

The iPad alone brought in $9.5 billion in revenue in 2010. Steve also has some disparaging words for Samsung's Galaxy Tab and other competitors, which have barely begun to sell.

Jobs also announced that "200 million people now have Apple ID (iTunes) accounts. These are accounts tied to credit cards with one-click purchase access."

"Amazon doesn't publish their numbers. But it's very likely that this is the most accounts with cards anywhere on the Internet," Jobs said.

Another massive number Jobs shared: Apple has no paid out over $2 billion to app developers directly thanks to all those cards tied to the App Store.

Jobs also noted that there are now over 350,000 apps in the App Store (of which, 65,000 are specifically built for the iPad).
