Apple Sells Up To 500,000 iPad 2s Opening Weekend.


With a market that is quickly becoming saturated, one would think the iPad 2 would have a hard time meeting or exceeding its predecessors sales numbers of ~300,000 opening weekend. But the latest figures from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster paints a pretty optimistic picture — 400,000 - 500,000 iPad 2s sold on opening weekend. One fact that further bolsters this claim can be seen in “sold out” verbiage at virtually any and every place that sells iPad 2s.

A small survey (236 participants) conducted by Munster recorded over 70% of respondents were first time iPad buyers, and not merely first-gen iPad buyers upgrading to the latest and greatest. This is telling in that it shows Apple’s reach is increasing rather than simply recycling hardware with a core group of loyal users. Of course, such a small sample base can hardly be accepted as truth. Though in the coming days, it will be interesting to see how that figure does or doesn’t change.
