Analysts predict Apple could sell 600,000 iPads today

By Hayley Tsukayama

Brian Marshall, an analyst at Gleacher & Co. has projected that Apple will sell up to 600,000 iPad 2 tablets by the end of the day. According to Bloomberg, several analysts have said that it's likely Apple will top half a million tablets in its first day of sales. When it launched, the iPad sold 300,000 in its first 24 hours on the market, but the appetite for tablets and the iPad in particular is much stronger in advance of this second launch.

Apple sold more than 15 million iPads in 2010, and CEO Steve Jobs said that the company commands a whopping 90 percent of the tablet market.

The iPad 2 is already for sale online and will be available at retail locations around the country at 5 p.m., local time. In addition to Apple stores, the tablet will be sold at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, AT&T and Verizon stores.
