According to surveys done, it has been revealed that Apple’s Macs are being out-sold by the iPad Tablet Device. According to RBC Capital Markets analyst Mike Abramsky, sales of the company’s new device have outpaced those of the Mac in the United States and are even closing in on the sales of the iPhone 3GS as well. Abramsky wrote in a note to clients this morning. “We believe Apple is now selling 200k iPads/week, greater than US Macs (est. 110k Macs/week) and just below US iPhone 3GS first quart (246k/week).”
The 3G iPad is sold out at many Apple stores, and about 25 percent of them now have only Wi-Fi iPads available. Retail checks in mid-May showing widespread iPad stockouts at Apple (AAPL) stores and Best Buy (BBY). Well in my opinion, word of mouth marketing is what boost the sales of the iPad and not what it is really capable of.
