iPad Mini + 4th Gen iPad Clocks 1M Sales/Day in the First 3 Days
By: Prashanth Shantharam  |  5, November 2012

iPad Mini and the 4th generation iPad have cumulatively sold over 3 million units in 3 days, Apple announced today. Apple does not break out individual device numbers, but it sure would be interesting to note how may iPad mini’s were sold, considering its a brand new product category for Apple.

Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO says ” Customers around the world love the new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad. We set a new launch weekend record and practically sold out of iPad minis. We’re working hard to build more quickly to meet the incredible demand.”

Going by the tepid response (in terms of outside stores line-lengths) the launch was perceived to have received, these numbers are pretty good. But they still have underperformed compared to the opening day, weekend and weekly sales of some of the other Apple devices.

    "Mobile is fundamentally reshaping how we as consumers spend from housing and healthcare to entertainment and travel, from food and drinks to communication and transportation. Mobile not only influences purchase behavior but also post purchase opinions. When the share button is literally a second away, consumers are willingly sharing more information than ever before. Mobile is thus helping close the nirvana gap for brands and advertisers who seek to connect advertising to actual transactions. The long-term battle is however for owning the context of the users. Having the best knowledge about the user to help drive the transaction is the simply the most valuable currency of commerce.” -- Chetan Sharma State of Global Mobile Industry Report1H, 2011
