All Things D reports this morning that Apple’s iPad is an incredible success. And why wouldn’t it be? Amongst the continuing criticism, people are genuinely interested in the slate form factor. So interested in fact, that 200,000 iPads are flying off the shelf each week. This honestly seems like a high number to me, but with Mac sales already surpassed, the iPad is reported to now be closing in on the iPhone 3GS. RBC Capital Markets analyst Mike Abramsky suggests that since sales are so strong, Apple will sell 8 million iPads by the time 2010 is done with. That’s a strong number sir, and only time will tell.
