As blogged by us earlier, no company has been able to diminish the glory of Apple’s iPad, which is still in dominating position and would remain in the foreseeable future because of its ease of operation, trouble-free performance, abundance of apps and strong battery life. This is the reason that iPad mini has broken all previous records and Apple has announced that it has sold three million iPads in three days since the launch of the iPad mini. It is quite evident that Apple is least bothered about Google Nexus 7 tablet or Amazon HD Kindle Fire.
Not only iPad Mini is shining, but Apple is laughing all the way to bank with its brisk and unprecedented sale of over 5 million iPhone in the first week of its launch and they are getting very good response of their fourth generation iPad also, which was also launched simultaneously with iPad Mini.
“Customers around the world love the new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We set a new launch weekend record and practically sold out of iPad minis. We’re working hard to build more quickly to meet the incredible demand.”
The new iPad mini features a 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display, FaceTime HD and iSight cameras, ultrafast wireless performance and 10 hours of battery life. The new fourth generation iPad features a 9.7-inch Retina display, new Apple-designed A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera and ultrafast wireless performance.
Both iPad mini and the fourth generation iPad with Retina display are currently available in 34 countries only and they have yet to reach China, which are crazy for Apple products and ofcourse India, which of late also is becoming significant market for iPad and iPhone. Just imagine, what will be sales figure of Apple when their devices reach huge countries like China, India and rest of the world. How popular is Apple brand can be gauged from the fact that some devout customers of Apple who cant’ wait for official arrival of their desired devices in their contry don’t mind to buy latest devices by paying premium from grey market. This is the madness and brand equity of Apple products and Steve Jobs must be smiling sitting in HEAVEN and playing with his state-of- the art gadgets.
