Apple And AT&T Announce Record Sales And Activations For The New iPad

After Apple announced that the new iPad drew record sales over this past weekend, AT&T is also reporting record sales. Exact sales numbers were not given by either company.

Here’s the statement from AT&T: On Friday, March 16, AT&T set a new single-day record for its iPad sales and activations, demonstrating robust demand for the new iPad on the nation’s largest 4G network, covering nearly 250 million people.

As we wrote earlier this morning, Apple’statement from CEO Tim Cook shows that the new iPad probably outsold the iPad But we still don’t have any number as to how many were sold over the past few days. Last year’s iPad 2 first weekend sales numbers were estimated at north of 1,000,000 units sold.

We’ll see if other iPad retailers, which include Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Sam’s Club and Radio Shack, come in with similar reports of record sales.
