Apple says it has sold 1 million of its new iPad tablet computers in the month after its launch, meaning it's been selling more than twice as fast as the iPhone did when it was new.

Apple Inc. of Cupertino, Calif., says it reached the milestone on Friday, when the new 3G model of the iPad was delivered to its first buyers.

Demand keeps exceeding supply, Apple CEO Steve Jobs says in a statement.
