Apple on Monday announced that iPad sales have topped two million in less than 60 days since its launch on April 3. Apple began shipping iPad in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK this past weekend. iPad will be available in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.

“Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do. We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive officer.

The popularity of Apple iPad can be explained with the fact that the device currently has not direct rivals. At present there are virtually no slate-type personal computers, but the demand towards large media players and e-book reader exists. As a result, it is hardly surprising that the iPad is rather popular among end-users despite of its price that begins at $499.

Wait, the subject line states that Apple has "sold" but then the content states that Apple has "shipped". There is a BIG difference between the two.
