It’s almost noon, and Apple still hasn’t put out a press release announcing how many iPad 2s it sold over the weekend. Is the number too low to brag about?
The demand for iPad 2s was there — recall the lines on Friday and throughout the weekend — but the supply wasn’t. (Leading some to question why Apple rushed the iPad 2 out when it knew it wouldn’t have enough stock, as opposed to waiting a few weeks.)
So what’s the lowest number that Apple would have had to sell in order to put out a press release? 500,000? 1 million?
Last year, Apple boasted that it had sold 300,000 iPads during opening weekend — and it published its press release before 9 a.m.
Today, its only comment so far has been to tell Apple news site The Loop that demand has been “amazing” — without any numbers.
Will we find out how many iPad 2s Apple has moved this week? Or will we have to wait until Apple’s earnings presentation in late April?
