In the few days since the touchscreen tablet computer hit stores in the United States, three million iPads have been sold, Apple said on June 22.
"People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives," Apple chief executive Steve Jobs said.
The iPad went on sale in the United States on April 3 and in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and Switzerland at the end of May.
"We're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people around the world, including those in nine more countries next month," Jobs said.
Apple said it sold its three millionth iPad on June 21.
