iPad Has Faster Adoption Rate Than DVD

104291662_wide About 4.5 million iPads are being sold every three months worldwide. That's an awesome number. This sales rate is blowing past the one million units the iPhone sold in its first quarter and the 350,000 units sold in the first year by the DVD player, the most quickly adopted non-phone electronic product. Industry analysts are saying this is just the beginning.

At this current rate, the iPad will pass gaming hardware and the cellular phone to become the fourth biggest consumer electronics category with estimated sales of more than $9 billion in the U.S. next year.
