Apple sells 3 million iPads, Murdoch calls it a fantastic invention

Appe has announced that it has sold more than 3 million iPads in 80 days.  That is an extraordinary number.

On the device itself and similar devices to follow, News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch was predicting a bright future in New York this week:

“This is a fantastic invention,” he said. “It combines the ability to present all forms of media to all people, from three year old children to 100 year old men.” He added: “I believe that within five years, you’ll have many hundreds of millions of iPad or iPad-like devices in the world. This is a huge new market.”

Business Week has the full story.

As I have taken my iPad around the country and shown it is newsagents over the last couple of weeks, it is interesting to see the reaction and to participate in the conversations which follow.  I’ll have some more to say on that next week.
