Kinect Sells Twice As Fast As iPad

Sales numbers are in, and the Kinect has sold 2.5 million units in 25 days. The iPad, in comparison, only sold 2 million in the same time frame after launch. The Kinect is definitely a success as far as sales go. Let’s see if they can keep up the momentum throughout the new year!

25 days after its launch, Microsoft said today that it has sold 2.5 million motion-detecting Kinect devices. Granted, that includes sales over the Black Friday shopping holiday, but reviews of the device have been positive. Apple took twice as long to sell its 2 millionth iPad. These seem to be the days of the radically new interface.
