Technology giant Apple Inc has said it sold two million iPads since its launch two months ago on high demand for the tablet PC.

The iPad sales had crossed one million mark in just 28 days after it was launched on April 3 in the US.

“Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs adding, “We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”

iPad costs $ 499, excluding other charges, in the U.S.

The multimedia touchscreen device can be used to browse the web, read and send e-mail, share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read e-books among others.

Last week, Apple began selling iPads in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K. Apple said the device would be available in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.
