One analyst believes that Apple had another record quarter for the iPhone in the first three months of this year, with a new study showing those users are quite happy with their choice, thank you very much.
No more speculation: Apple has just announced that the iPad sold over 300,000 units on its first day, encompassing preorders shipped to customers as well as sales at both Apple Store and Best Buy locations.
If the analysts are to be believed, Apple had a gold rush of preorders Friday, when the iPad first became available. But over the weekend, somebody may have turned that cash faucet almost all the way off.
While it’s widely known that Apple makes most of its money from hardware, one analyst predicts that the various content sold on the forthcoming iPad will equal nearly 30 percent of what Cupertino makes on the device by 2011.
March is barely a few hours old, and already the rumors are flying that a “manufacturing bottleneck” will constrain iPad shipments when they finally arrive at month’s end. Where have we heard this story before?
