Apple stores across the world today have been bombarded by excited fans in anticipation of the iPad 3, which was released at 8am this morning. Despite some controversy regarding Apple’s practices, the iPad 3 is expected to break sales records. Apple predicts that by the end of 2012, they will have sold 55 million of the new product which will add up to 100 million iPad sales in total.
Sales though, won’t be attributed to the average consumer only. Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak waited in line at a Los Angeles store for the iPad 3 with his wife. He stated, “I wanna be one of the real people, who line up and wait all night…Apple’s just that important to us.” Others around the world seem to share the same sentiment. Stores near you, such as Sherman Oaks and Thousand Oaks are selling the new iPad on a first come, first serve basis so if you haven’t purchased one yet, hurry over!
