Within the first three days of sales, Apple was able to break their own record with the new new iPad, selling 3 million of the devices. Analysts assumed Apple would only move approximately 500,000 to 1 million units and regardless of their mistake to make the new tablet easy to find on launch day in other retailers like Best Buy, they were still able to triple the projected number, which is an impressive feat in itself.
However (and there's always a however with an Apple report), I believe they have been a little too scared about Amazon's Kindle Fire and how well Amazon might actually do with their little tablet that could. Apple could be so scared, in fact, that they might even be taking a page out of the competitor's book as this week, we learned that this new version of the new iPad may be a little too hot to handle.
We have the burning scoop after the break.
