“iPad unit sales… as of Monday, July 9, I’ve seen 60 estimates — 28 from the professionals who cover Apple for banks and brokerage houses and 32 from a rapidly growing contigent of independent Apple analysts — bloggers, long-term investors and at least one day trader who has started a multimillion-dollar Apple hedge fund,” Philip Elmer-DeWitt reports for Fortune.
