One million iPads now sold

Milestone hit in less than a month.

Apple has announced that a million iPads have now been sold, less than a month after the device's American release.

To contrast, it took over two months for the iPhone to sell its first million units when it was released in 2007.

Apple also announced that 12 million iPad native Apps have been downloaded from their App Store. Early statistics showed that over one third of the apps available for the iPad are games, though it's hard to say what proportion of App sales these titles are responsible for.

The iPad's sales success isn't all good news from a European Apple fan's perspective. The high American demand is apparently the reason the European iPad launch has been delayed to late May.
