Apple said Monday iPad sales have surpassed two million in less than 60 days since its launch on April 3.

Apple began shipping iPad in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK this past Friday. iPad is set to launch in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.

"Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do," said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO.

"We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone."

iPads have been on sale longer than the April 3 launch date. Apple’s sales figures include pre-orders in the U.S., which began March 12.

Apple’s iPad sales are significantly higher that what most analysts predicted earlier this year. After Apple introduced the iPad in January, analysts forecast it would sell between 175,000 and 778,000 devices monthly.

Developers have created over 5,000 new apps for the iPad since its launch. IPad will run most of the more than 200,000 apps in the App Store.

    It’s really no surprise that Apple’s iPad is selling like hotcakes; it’s simply a fantastic device!
    I’ve owned one for well over a month now and to get mine I had to pay almost double the price. It’s not that I’m a fanatic about it but, at the time, I was contemplating buying an ebook reader device (The Kindle actually). I like to read, a lot, but don’t like the fact that my books require trees to print on them, so I decided to go digital (plus – in the long run – I’ll save hundreds if not thousands of dollars on books).

    Once I learned that iPad offers the same downloads as the Kindle AND it’s much like a Touch but bigger and more powerful, all for almost the same price as the Kindle, I just jumped on it.

    Sure there are a few details to work out with the iPad – but that’s like any other new electronic – I still recommend it to anyone who likes to surf the web on-the-go, it’s simply a must have.

    Cheers,

    Anthony
