Analyst: 300,000 iPad 3Gs sold over the weekend

Sure, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster totally blew it when he guesstimated that Apple sold 700,000 iPads during the launch weekend of the Wi-Fi-only model, but that didn’t stop him from spending his Sunday penning a note to investors in which he estimated that Apple moved some 300,000 3G units this past weekend. If his assumption is correct (we feel it necessary to add it was simply obtained by calling 50 Apple Stores and finding all but one of them with no iPads left on shelves), this would mean Apple has more than surpassed the 1 million mark considering 1) 300,000 were sold one month ago today, and 2) it only took 500,000 sold to derail the international launch. Munster is sticking to his “conservative estimate” that Apple will sell 4.3 million iPads across the globe in 2010 with about 60% of them being the Wi-Fi model.
