Apple confirms 300,000 iPads sold on launch day Apple has released the official figures today for U.S. iPad sales, saying that including pre-orders, the company has sold 300,000 units on launch date.
Analyst Gene Munster had predicted 700,000 unit sales yesterday, but he was clearly wrong. The 300,000 number is still a large number however, surpassing all conservative predictions.

On launch day, one million apps were downloaded, and 250,000 e-books were downloaded from the iBookStore, notes Apple.

The iPad is available today starting at $499, for the Wi-Fi only version. 3G data versions will be available by the end of April.

Those of us who are more computer knowledgeable need to inform the less informed about why they shouldn't consider buying this product and many similar products from the same brand.

The basic answer is "There are other products out there that are cheaper and provide more features for less or equal money."

You always read about how many of something was sold, but you never hear about the number of purchasers who regret buying the product. There are probably some purchasers out their who don't want to regret their purchase, so they are in denial and are trying to convince themselves otherwise by lowing their own standards of what is considered an acceptable product.
