Apple has now sold more than two million iPad tablets, it said Monday, less than two months after the iPad’s April 3 U.S. launch.
The iPad went on sale in nine countries Friday — Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K. — nearly two months after it launched in the U.S on April 3. Since going on sale, Apple has had trouble keeping up with demand, forcing the company to push back the international launch by a month. Apple reiterated Monday that the iPad will be available in nine more countries in July.
Apple said 5,000 applications built specifically for the iPad are now available in the App Store. In all, Apple has more than 200,000 apps in the store that are compatible with the iPad.
