22 Million iPads in F2011

Ghai now estimates that Apple will sell 5.75 million iPads in the quarter that ends Sept. 25, up from an earlier estimate of 5 million, and 22 million in fiscal 2011, up from 19.5 million.

That’s very close to my estimate of 21 million, though I might add that my estimate is unrevised since US supply met demand. There are still markets which don’t have iPad distribution however, so we’ll see if global demand can be met before year end.

By the way, the estimate of 5.75 million for this quarter is higher than all but three of 14 analysts estimates on iPad unit forecasts *for the first year*.
