How Quickly Will the iPad Sell Out?

Will the iPad sell faster than motorized hamsters at Christmas? Tech analysts think so. The iPad hits stores at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster estimates that 200,000 to 300,000 iPads would sell over the weekend, and 1 million in the quarter, while another analyst said he thought iPads would be sold-out by "early afternoon." Two video-heavy application from Netflix and ABC unveiled Thursday may help boost sales and cushion the criticism Apple received for developing its new tablet computer without Adobe Flash, which many sites rely on to show video.
