Apple Sells Over 3 Million 4th Gen iPads And iPad Minis Over Launch Weekend

Apple is once again singing the praises of their market shifting iPad as over this past weekend the device(s) managed to sell over 3 million units in just 3 days. It’s worth pointing out that the aforementioned figure is for both full-size 4th-gen iPads as well as iPad minis - Apple did not break down numbers between the two.

Initially after launch, tech pundits were worried that the iPad 2′s aging A5 processor and non-Retina display would soften demand and leave a lot of people looking at competing options from various Android manufacturers as well as Microsoft’s new Surface RT tablet. As this past week has shown, however, it appears that even a nearly two year old processor and lower resolution display can still captivate the masses when the bigger picture (ecosystem) is factored in.
