How would you like to sell three million of anything in three days? Just ask Apple how it feels. The company's 4th-gen iPad and iPad mini have only been on sale since November 2nd, but already it has moved three million of them. Oddly, Apple isn't breaking down the split between new iPads and the iPad mini, just saying that the new iPad family sold through three million during their first three days on the shelf. That actually doubles the previous first weekend milestone of 1.5 million Wi-Fi only models sold for the third generation iPad in March. The Wi-Fi + Cellular versions of both iPad mini and fourth generation iPad will ship in a few weeks in the US and in many more countries later this year.

Both iPad mini and the new fourth generation iPad with Retina display are available in 34 countries including the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and the UK, and will be available in many more countries later this year, including mainland China. Demand for iPad mini exceeded the initial supply and while many of the pre-orders have been shipped to customers, some are scheduled to be shipped later this month.

Something tells us that iPad mini may continue on much like the iPad mini, slowly becoming the highest selling one in the whole family. And with the holidays just around the bend...

I bet you 2.9 million of those people that bought it already own: iphone 3, iphone4 and a ipad. I seriousley don't think at this point apple really suckers any new customers to their cult its mostly just the current loyal sheep that keep falling for it.

I agree to you lipe I guess 3 or 3.5 million people must have bought their iphones. I recently visited to villas à vendre antibes  France and over there I have literally seen almost every 3rd person using that !!
