Apple iPad orders drop sharply
With three weeks and two weekends left before they ship, I wouldn't expect much more than half a million in pre-orders and reservations," he says.
"My best guess, although very tentative given the early stage and few data we have so far, would be that they hit the 1 million unit milestone by the second week after it ships," he told Fortune. "But this is a very speculative guesstimate based on just a weekend of pre-orders."
Tello's estimates are based on 120 orders for 137 iPads over 58 hours, starting at 8:30 a.m. ET Friday. (Source: Philip Elmer-DeWitt, CNN)
