Apple has sold every single second-generation tablet it manufactured during the first quarter of 2011, the firm has reported.
Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook revealed that demand for the iPad 2 is continuing to outpace supply, as the product goes on sale in more countries around the world.
He explained that customers in 26 nations worldwide can already get their hands on an iPad 2, with the tablet set to go on sale in a further 13 next week.
Mr Cook noted that more than 4.7 million iPad 2 devices have been sold since the touch-screen computer was launched in the US on March 11th.
"We sold every iPad 2 that we could make during the quarter, and would've liked to end the quarter with more channel inventory," he stated.
However, he said he was "extremely pleased" with the progress of iPad 2 manufacturing, expressing confidence that the firm can ship "a very large number" of devices during Q2 2011.
"iPad 2 has been staggering," Mr Cook commented. "And we are still amazed at it."
Apple recently reported revenues of $24.67 billion (£14.95 billion) for the three-month period between January and March 2011.
