iPad teardownThe Apple iPad finally hit the market on April 3 and according to Apple, it has sold over 300,000 units in the US on the first day of its availability, which include “deliveries of pre-ordered iPads to customers, deliveries to channel partners and sales at Apple Retail Stores.”

Not only that, according to stats, iPad owners already downloaded over 1 million applications and 250,000 eBooks during the first day.

“It feels great to have the iPad launched into the world—it’s going to be a game changer,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPad users, on average, downloaded more than three apps and close to one book within hours of unpacking their new iPad.”
