AT&T activations for the iPad Air's launch weekend were "more than 200%" greater than those for the fourth-generation iPad, according to an official statement. The carrier hasn't provided any specific numbers, but the news represents the first official sales data for the Air since it was released last Friday. AT&T also claims that it saw "strong demand" for its Next upgrade program, which lets people avoid down payments but at the expense of an extra monthly fee.

Apple has yet to make an announcement of its own for Air figures. The delay is unexpected, since it typically uses the first Monday after a product launch to tout its successes. The Air is generally believed to have sold well; while Apple's US online store lists all models as shipping within 24 hours, many retail outlets are now low or out of some configurations, particularly cellular-equipped versions.

What he said. 200% greater is 3x, not double. 100% more is 2x. 200% of last year is double.

English.

I'm a bird. I am the 1% (of pets).
