Australians bought an estimated 30,000 iPads Friday as the product went on sale nationwide, according to the “Daily Telegraph.” A further 20,000 of the tablet computers are expected to be sold this weekend, the newspaper adds.

In Sydney, the first iPads were sold to the more than 300 customers who camped out overnight in the cold outside the flagship George St store. By comparison, Apple sold more than 500,000 iPads in the first week of release in the US and a million after 28 days.
