More Than 300,000 iPads Sold & 1 Million iPad Apps Downloaded on First Day

Apple announced on Monday morning that it sold more than 300,000 iPads in the U.S. on the first day of sales, including “deliveries of pre-ordered iPads to customers, deliveries to channel partners and sales at Apple Retail Stores.”

Furthermore, iPad users downloaded more than one million apps from the App Store and 250,000 e-books from the iBookstore on the first day.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster estimated that 600,000-700,000 units were sold over the weekend — his estimate, however, was too optimistic. The numbers are still fantastic, and we’re glad Apple checked the wild predictions floating on the web. Once the initial frenzy subsides and the 3G model hits the market, we’ll have a better idea of whether the iPad really is a game changer, as Steve Jobs suggests.
