Apple CEO Steve Jobs says the company has sold 450,000 iPads since its launch Saturday.
Jobs, looking thin in his signature black turtleneck, jeans and wire-rimmed glasses, gave out the information at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., on Thursday as the company was releasing details of its next operating system for its iPhone and iPad.
The company earlier said it sold more than 300,000 iPads on its first day, though that included pre-orders and units shipped to retail stores such as Best Buy but not necessarily purchased right away. That figure was in line with analysts expectations.
The iPad models currently on sale connect to the Internet using Wi-Fi, at prices that start at $499.
