Apple have announced record breaking sales of it’s new iPad this week with the number of units sold in the first 3 days topping 3 million!
The upgrade to the iPad 2 is clear to see with a stunning retina display, A5X dual-core processor, quad-core graphics and 4G capabilities albeit at a small price as the new iPad has put on a bit of weight (and depth).
Despite the added depth, Apple have enjoyed the most profitable iPad launch to date so far with consumers still willing to splash the big bucks on an iPad (up to £659!).
Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president said:
“The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold – the strongest iPad launch yet”.
With the new iPad on sale in 12 countries so far and ready to be rolled out to another 24 come the 23rd of March, expect more record-breaking sales stats to come out from the company which already has more money than god.
New iPad is hot right now… Literally
Last week, new iPad customers took to the web to complain that their new favourite toy was becoming increasingly hot and bothered.
Almost immediately, Apple’s spokeswoman, Trudy Miller, responded in a very ‘everything is fine, nothing to see here, do one’ tone.
“The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications.”
“If customers have any concerns, they should contact Apple Care.”
Apple’s thermal specifications she referred to requires the new iPad to run between 32 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit (0 – 35 degrees Celsius).
No sooner had the statement been made when an independent, non-profit consumer reports organisation posted a measurement of a staggering 116 degrees Fahrenheit!
The reading was taken using a thermal imaging camera after playing Infinity Blade II for 45 minutes with the device plugged in and it doesn’t take a genius to know that 116 degrees is quite a bit hotter than 95.
What do you have to say now Trudy?
