The debut weekend for the iPad mini and the newest, fourth generation iPad turned out to be better than expected.
According to CNN Money, Apple sold 3 million iPads over the weekend, doubling its previous debut record of 1.5 million third-generation iPads set in March. The article noted that despite the lingering effects of Hurricane Sandy, Apple’s flagship store in Manhattan sold out of white iPad minis in an hour and the black iPad minis sold out in two hours.
A Businessweek article on the successful opening weekend quoted an analyst at the brokerage firm Sterne Agee & Leach Inc. who reflected on the booming iPad sales in the Big Apple despite continuing power outages and lingering transportation issues. Perhaps noting a source of optimism, the analyst said,
“With all the extreme weather, I guess people still have time to buy an iPad.”
