Three million iPads have been sold in the 80 days since the touchscreen tablet computer hit stores in the United States, Apple said Tuesday.
"People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives," Apple chief executive Steve Jobs said in a statement.
The iPad went on sale in the United States on April 3 and in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and Switzerland at the end of May.
"We're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people around the world, including those in nine more countries next month," Jobs said.
Apple said it sold its three millionth iPad on Monday.
