Apple announced that it had sold more than one million iPads on May 3, just 28 days after the connected tablet device was introduced in the US.
“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.”
More than 5,000 iPad native apps have appeared in the App Store since the device was announced.
Next year Louis Vuitton will be releasing custom iPad Cases. The cases will come both in the Monogram and in the Damier Graphite design.
Both signature Louis Vuitton options will come in a sleeve case allowing for the iPad to be carried with ease and protection.

Luxury hotel chain InterContinental is to trial iPad devices for its concierge staff from next week.
InterContinental Hotels and Resorts, which owns 166 high-end properties, will roll out the devices to trial hotels in four cities as part of a global program.
A spokesman for the brand confirmed to Relaxnews that if the trial was successful, the chain will consider rolling the scheme out globally.
Using the devices, hotel staff will be able to provide high-resolution satellite maps, close-up street views and short video clips of local attractions to guests.
Only days from the release of Apple’s much-hyped iPad, a second automaker has announced that it plans to develop a publishing presence on the device.
US car brand Cadillac, a division of GM, has announced a partnership with design website Cool Hunting to develop an app for the iPad, which goes on sale in the US on April 3.
The new app will feature content from the influential Cool Hunting blog, described as a “daily look at ideas and products on the intersection of art, design, culture and technology.”
Cadillac appears to have found a way around its partner’s claim that “Money can buy you a lot of things, but it can’t buy you coverage on Cool Hunting.”
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has unveiled the iPad, a large touch-screen device for reading, browsing the internet, listening to music and playing games.
The iPad is a super thin design that’s half an inch thin and features a 9.7 inch screen, 3G, 802.11 WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, 16-64GBs of storage, and an incredible 10 hours of battery life.
