Official press release:
Fortune has two sources saying about the number of iPads that will be pre-sold by Friday.
Venezuelan analyst and blogger Daniel Tello, who tried to track order numbers that were submitted by internet volunteers, said:
“I think sometime during Friday, perhaps before noon, the counter should roll to 200,000 units pre-ordered.”
Boy Genius counted 222 retail locations in the USA with 700 in-store pick-up reservations for the first week of pre-orders. Fortune believes it is almost the same rate as online.
Summing the numbers of online and offline pre-orders we'll have almost 400,000 iPads to be pre-sold for only 7 days!
