“…through the last quarter, I should say, which is just 2 years after we shipped the initial iPad, we’ve sold 67 million. And to put that in some context, it took us 24 years to sell that many Macs and 5 years for that many iPods and over 3 years for that many iPhones. And we were extremely happy with the trajectory on all of those products. And so I think iPad, it’s a profound product.”
I pre-ordered a third-generation iPad last week and was surprised that it had shipped over the weekend for Friday delivery. Now I see why. It’s coming direct from China! It appears that UPS is managing all the logistics on this rollout, timing it so that I receive my iPad on the official first day. EPZ, by the way, means export processing zone. Apparently China rings areas with security to make a small shipping city.

iPhone or iPad applications with this tool using XCode and the Objective-C programming
