On Friday, March 16, AT&T set a new single-day record for its iPad sales and activations. This demonstrates “robust demand for the new iPad on the nation’s largest 4G network, covering nearly 250 million people,” the company says.

Along the same lines, in a press conference talking about Apple’s decision to implement a dividend and cash repurpose program (http://macte.ch/RG7R3), Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the first weekend of new iPad sales broke company records. However, he didn’t offer any details; he said those would be forthcoming later.
