[Gizmodo] Two Million People Now Own iPads

Two million. That's a big, big number—and certainly a far cry from the 300,000 Apple sold on the launch day. It's largely helped by the international launch last Friday in the UK, Europe, Canada, Australia and Japan.

It's a great thing, it brings computing to a whole new level, and makes it accessible to everyone in a user-friendly setting and device.

Good products sell well. And it helps to have that powerhouse advertising team behind it.

I'm willing to bet most of the customers also think Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Lily Allen are great artists with a lot of talent.

The iPad is like the iPhone, a great way to get a newish market (Consumer smartphones for the iPhone), and just like that market, Android will sweep in and kick butt left, right and center.

I actually have an Android phone, and I have to say that it's a good Phone OS, but it's snot there yet, I would replace android with the iPhone or RIM OS, as those OS platforms actually do those things, Android doesn't kick butt just because it's open source. Open Source != Greatness. I also own many apple products and I own Android phone as well, and I hate all three of those artists, except for Lily Allens F*** you song, it's good sometimes.

I see ads for these things everywhere. it is being called "the magical and revolutionary device"

How exactly is it either of those? The chinese iPed ripoff has more features... albeit it is slower, it has USB, MircoSD, and other things that iCrap products have not had without jailbreaking.
