Sources tell WSJ iPad to outsell iPhone within 3 months of sales start

Apple Inc. is still negotiating lowered-priced content deals from media companies for its iPad ahead of the device’s April 3 launch, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday on its Web site, citing unidentified sources close to the matter. Apple has already sold hundreds of thousands of the devices on pre-order, according to the Journal. The sources also told the newspaper that the iPad may outsell the iPhone within the first three months after launch.

My emphasis.

That does not seem to be quite a huge feat.  The iPhone sold 1 million within 74 days and approximately 1.4 million in the first quarter.

With “a few hundred thousand” pre-sold it seems rather likely to me that an additional million for three months is not a stretch.
