It has been reported that Apple could potentially have a record breaker on their hands with the iPad tablet, as it has been confirmed that pre-orders are selling in hundreds of thousands.
According to this report from Apple Insider, if pre-orders continue in this trend, it could result in Apple selling more iPad units in the first three months on sale, compared to what they achieved with the original iPhone’s first three months on sale in 2007.
If this is correct, that means that Apple will surpass the 1.2 million iPhone handset units that they sold in the first three months in 2007 – which would be a remarkable achievement for the iPad.
With all the hype seemingly about the new iPhone 4G and whether it will release in 2010, the iPad could still be the one which grabs all the headlines after its release next month.
