Apple recently announced that it sold 1 million iPads during the past 28 days. No wonder Google’s racing to catch up. Mashable has the scoop:

Apple today announced that it sold its one millionth iPad on Friday, just 28 days after its introduction on April 3. iPad users have already downloaded over 12 million apps from the App Store and over 1.5 million ebooks from the new iBookstore.

“One million iPads in 28 days—that’s less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Demand continues to exceed supply and we’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers.”

In other words, Apple had a typical early-adopter spike. It will take several more months to see whether the iPad gains traction with mainstream users.
