In a recent press announcement, Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs said the company sold three millionth iPad on June 21, just 80 days after its introduction in the U.S. While Apple is celebrating the success of their newest device, Web site designers and applications developers are busy preparing the iPad-compliant Web sites and applications.
With the increasing popularity of devices like smartphones and MIDs, Internet is no more confined to the desktop or laptops. As the trends indicate, the popularity of such devices will skyrocket in the coming years, shifting the habit of Internet surfing from desktop to hands.
The numbers that Steve Jobs put in front of the public explains how quickly people adopt a new technology that gives them mobility with added convenience. Apple sold the first one million iPads in 28 days, the second million in 31 days, and the third in just 21 days. If this growth continues, Apple is likely to break all its past records within a few months.
"People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives," said Steve Jobs after announcing the product’s “3-million milestone” achievement. "We're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people around the world, including those in nine more countries next month."
Apple’s products, including the newly launched iPad, are gaining popularity worldwide. The first million iPads were sold in the U.S. Apple announced the second million three days after it started selling the device in nine more countries. In the coming days, Apple will release the product in more countries.
Apple iPad also hit headlines with its revolutionary support for the emerging HTML5, sending shockwaves among Web developers and supporters of Adobe Flash. Apple’s devices no more support Flash. This move, according to Apple, is to reduce the burden on the processor and save the battery life of the device. Apple calls Flash as a “CPU hog.”
