iPad Sales Increasing: Kindle and Nook Retaliation

In a recent statement from Apple’s Chief Executive Steve Jobs, it has been announced that in less than 3 months since the Apple iPads hit stores, Apple have sold 3 million units. Buyers are enjoying the benefits of the iPad and are using them on a daily basis. Sales have further increased and Apple are hoping to extend this next month in 9 other countries.

According to Adam Ostrow at Mashable, Apple iPad will keep moving from strength to strength. The company announced 2 million devices were sold just 22 days ago. In July, figures are expected to increase when the iPad will be on sale in even more countries.

With this product and new devices on the horizon, Apple are feeling rather proud of themselves and quite rightly so. On the other hand competitors like Kindle and Nook are not sharing the enthusiasm and Apple’s success. Therefore price cuts have been seen by buyers. The new Droid phone is to be announced tomorrow, and the Apple iPhone 4 is reported as arriving a day early, great news for some customers.

    B&N Nook started the reader price cutting. Amazon just responded with Kindle. Re iPad – awesome device but not what I want for a reader. I know several people who owned a Kindle first then got iPad and are keeping both for different purposes. iPad excels at multimedia and games, but Kindle beats it for book reading and by far for battery life.
