Apple sells 2 million iPads in under 60 days

Ipad beats the 74-day sales record previously set by the iPhone.

Apple announced on Monday that it has been selling almost 35,000 iPads everyday since the device went on sale on 3 April, totaling about two million iPads in less than two months.

The tablet computer is available in only select countries around the world. The iPad was launched in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the UK on Friday. Deliveries to these countries were delayed, however, as Apple scrambled to cater to the US demand.

Apple's other mobile device, the iPhone, took more than 74 days to reach the one million sales figure.

In a statement posted on the Apple website, chief executive Steve Jobs said the company is working towards building iPads for everyone.
