Apple's iPad has hit one million sales, hitting the milestone more than twice as fast as the iPhone.

"One million iPads in 28 days — that's less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone," said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. "Demand continues to exceed supply, and we’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers."

The firm also began selling the 3G model of the iPad over the weekend in the US. This version can access a cellular network, whereas the first models had only wi-fi access.

The iPad went on sale in the US on 3 April. The international launch has been delayed due to domestic demand, but Apple says overseas buyers can start ordering on May 10th.
