AT&T reports single-day record for new iPad sales and activations
The U.S. mobile carrier declined to state the specific number of activations on its 4G LTE network.
ATT issued the following statement this morning via PR Newswire:
"On Friday, March 16, AT&T set a new single-day record for its iPad sales and activations, demonstrating robust demand for the new iPad on the nation's largest 4G network, covering nearly 250 million people."
The news comes on the heels of Apple's financial announcement today that the iPad also set record sales, and that the company will be giving shareholders a quarterly dividend as well as spending $10 billion buying back its own stock.
