I will be surprised if the number of units sold in Apple’s CQ2 doesn’t exceed 1 million. This will probably mean better performance with a new platform than Nokia, Google, Sony Ericsson or HTC and perhaps better than the iPhone.

In either case, iPad will sell better than the iPhone out of the gate.
The iPhone sold 1 million within 74 days.  The iPad sold 1 million units in less than half the time the iPhone did.
