Apple sold 3 million new iPads in the device’s first weekend, but hasn’t released any new numbers. The company released the tablet in 12 countries today, and will bring it to another nine on April 27. By the end of the month it will be available in a total of 52 countries. Being able to promise an iPad in 5-7 days when its available in so many countries is quite impressive.
Apple still hasn’t released the device in China, though it does have approval to do so. That release is coming soon, we just don’t know when.
Although the Apple website lists the iPad as shipping in 5-7 days, there’s also an option to pick it up at a store. Shoppers can also shop for the iPad online and order for pickup in a local Apple store, just select the “Pickup at store” option at checkout. We were able to confirm same-day pickup at several Apple locations using the Apple store app.
The new iPad is also available in other stores in the U.S. such as Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and RadioShack. With all the stores that sell the iPad, finding a store that has one in stock is just a matter of looking.
