“Brian White with Ticonderoga Securities said in a note to investors on Friday that he ‘would not be surprised’ if sales of the iPad 2 reach 1 million over the weekend. That would easily best last year’s sales of 1 million in just 28 days,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
Hughes reports, “White said the sales pace will also likely continue into the coming weeks, as Apple plans to launch the iPad 2 in 26 more countries on March 25. Friday’s 5 p.m. sales start applies to the U.S. only. He noted signs of strong demand already, with online orders not shipping for 2 or 3 weeks, and lines forming at stores around the country.”
