Apple announced that it has sold three million iPads in the 80 days since its introduction.

"People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives," Apple CEO Steve Jobs said in a statement. "We're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people around the world, including those in nine more countries next month."

Apple Sells a million iPadsAt the end of May, Jobs announced that Apple had sold 2 million, just on the heels of its release to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.

On May third, exactly a month after the iPad's introduction, Apple had announced that it sold a million. In other words, iPad sales seem to be pretty steady at about a million a month (a little better than that).

It will be interesting to see how long this trend keeps up. A survey shared today by Retrevo found that people who read a lot are more likely to buy e-readers than iPads, and another recent survey found that people would be more willing to purchase Android-based tablets if they are cheaper than iPads.
