Over 300,000 iPads Sold First Day

According to Apple’s own PR page, it sold over 300,000 iPads in the US as of midnight Saturday, April 3, 2010.  (So, technically, with stores opening or deliveries beginning around 9:00 or 10:00 am and assuming 16 hours of store sales, that is more than 18,750 iPads an hour or over 312 per minute or a little more than 5 per second.)  This includes in store sales, pre-ordered iPads and deliveries to channel partners.

Interestingly, this is more than the approximately 270,000 original iPhones sold in the first 30 hours of availability.
