The figure doesn't include reservations placed at Apple stores. The source said that Applke Stores received an average 300-350 orders on day 1 and now average about 700 pre-orders at each location. That is, except for the flagship Apple Store in New York City where 800 units were reserved the first day and 400 iPads per day over the weekend were subsequently pre-ordered for a total of 1600 units. At the stores, 50% of the orders were for the 32GB unit with 30% coming in for the high end 64GB model and 10% holding the 16GB iPad.
