(CNET) — Apple says that it has sold more than 2 million iPads since the device debuted April 3rd.
It’s safe to assume that the vast majority of those sales came from the U.S. market, as the iPad only just went on sale last weekend in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, and the U.K. Apple didn’t say how many iPads were sold internationally.
Speculation that Apple is having a hard time keeping up with demand for the iPad seems to have been confirmed by Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a statement announcing the sales numbers Monday.
“We appreciate [customer] patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone,” said Jobs.
Apple also said there are now 5,000 apps specifically built for the iPad in the AppStore. In all, Apple has more than 200,000 apps in the store that are compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, or the iPad.
It took Apple 28 days to sell its first million iPads and about the same amount of time to sell its second million. It will be interesting to see what happens to sales now that the iPad is available in more countries.

At this year’s Milan Design Week 2010, Swarovski commissioned five separate artists to each apply their own respective take on the famous ornamental crystal brand. Included were Tokujin Yoshioka, Gwenaël Nicolas, Vincent van Duysen, Rogier van der Heide and Yves Béhar. Each creative produced some stunning work as they worked with the notion of re-designing a room to reflect the beauty of palaces around the world. Japanese artist Tokujin Yoshioka’s interpretation was titled Stellar and featured an LED infused ball of crystals. Gwenaël Nicolas’s Sparks also incorporated LEDs into a free-floating spherical ball. Rogier van der Heide’s Dream Cloud was comprised of crystals hanging from above a tulip garden. Vincent van Duysen’s work featured suspended rods of crystals within a mirrored room which effectively created the illusion of a room full of crystal encrusted rods. Rounding out the interpretations was Yves Béhar and his Amplified room which looked to unite technology and Swarovski crystals through a simple medium resulting in paper lanterns with crystals positioned within, each reflecting light against the lantern body. At the conclusion of the installations was a room featuring designers for the Swarovski Crystal Palace project over the last eight years.
