Apple hits 3M mark with newest iPad

Just three days after Apple launched the newest iPad in stores, the company announced it has sold a whopping 3 million units.

The tablet computers were sold at the Apple stores in South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island. Even over the weekend, there were still lines to buy them.

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said it was the strongest iPad release yet.

Analysts had anticipated that the third-generation iPad would be a strong seller — Apple had described the pre-order experience as "off the charts" — but the general consensus was that Apple would sell between 2 million and 3 million units by the end of March.
