Analysts: Nearly 1m US iPad 2s sold in opening weekend

According to estimations by analysts, via Reuters, Apple sold nearly 1 million second-generation iPads in its opening weekend in the US.

"We would not be surprised to see Apple sell closer to 1 million iPad 2's in the opening weekend," said Wedbush's Scott Sutherland in a note.

"Our field checks over the weekend indicate that the iPad 2 sold out at every Apple and non-Apple store we contacted," added Ticonderoga Securities' Brian White.

"In fact, all the stores had worked through iPad 2 inventory by Saturday afternoon, and there were no new iPad 2 deliveries on Sunday."

The device launched last Friday in the US following an event in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago, just across the road and at the same time as Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's GDC keynote. It will go up against the launch of 3DS in the UK and Europe on March 25.
