    Trying to find what total iPad's sold are, but could not find a solid number.

    Find plenty of per quarter, and total to early 2011, but not of all.

    So, including the 3 million "new iPad" on opening weekend, what is the total #?

    Thanks

    Apple doesn't usually disclose that info until their quarterly report.

    55 million through the end of 2011. Estimates around 15 million for Q1 2012.

    The "55 million" number came from Tim Cook on launch day (March 7). Add the 3 million sold in the first week plus the new rollout last week. 60 million sold since it was introduced is not unrealistic.

    Awesome! Thanks for that link!

    2012 Q1 is the Christmas season results, right? So there is a few weeks of additional iPad 2 sales not counted. So very likely well over 60 million sold.

    (guessing 2012 Q2 will show over 15 million shipped)

    Correct.

    I think today or tomorrow is the end of Apple's Q2 2012, to the total is probably over 70 million by now.

    3 million new iPads sold.

    However because scalpers are returning in masses the past week up until tomorrow. Probably 10-20% return rate.

    Did you pull that number out of thin air? :rolleyes:

    Apple sold 55 million through Q1 2012 (Christmas 2011 included in those numbers). Assuming that Apple sole two million iPad 2s between the end of Q1 and March 16, you're looking at about 60M total, including the 3M new iPads sold that weekend. I'd wager that at least 5-10M more have been sold between March 19 and today, based in part on the rollout to 25 more countries last Friday.

    Furthermore, there is no 10-20% return rate on the iPads. If that was true, the media would be all over Apple's business, declaring the new iPad a "failure" and a "flop". I did exchange my 32GB iPad for a 64GB yesterday because I needed the extra storage, and I asked about returns. The Apple associate (a friend of mine I've known for years) said they've mainly seen people upgrading to larger capacities or from WiFi only to WiFi/LTE, not returns for defective product.

    I believe Apple has passed the 100 million mark. :)
