Even Apple appears somewhat surprised by the meteoric rise of its newest product. "One million iPads in 28 days – that's less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with [the] iPhone," Apple's CEO Steve Jobs commented in a press release.
Buyers have also scooped up 12 million apps from the App Store, Apple said. In an encouraging sign for the book publishing industry, 1.5 million e-books have also been digitally plucked from the shelves of the iBook store.
