Yes, the Apple Inc company said it has sold 3 million of the new iPad devices since launching on Friday in more than a dozen countries. That number does not include preorders of the device, which went live the day the product was announced.

“The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold―the strongest iPad launch yet,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Customers areloving the incredible new features of iPad, including the stunning Retina display, and we can’t wait to get it into the hands of even more customers around the world this Friday.”

The new iPad is currently only available in 12 countries, with another 24 countries able to get their mitts on the latest Apple tablet come 23 March.
