Summary:

Steve Jobs says that Apple is selling an iPad every three seconds and that 8,500 applications are available for the tablet. Five million ebooks have been downloaded and the iBooks software is getting an upgrade with support for Adobe PDF documents in the bookshelf.

All eyes are on Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference today for a peep at the newest iPhone, but CEO Steve Jobs is starting off with updates on the iPad. We already knew that Apple has sold over 2 million iPads, but putting that into perspective, Jobs says that one iPad is sold every three seconds. And in just two months, there are now 8,500 software applications specific to the device — already more than double the number of apps currently available for the Palm webOS platform, which hit the market one year ago yesterday.

iPad owners must have found plenty of quality titles, too — the iTunes App Store has so far delivered more than 35 million iPad software downloads. One of those titles is Apple’s own iBooks; Jobs says that to date, 5 million e-book titles have been downloaded for iBooks. The application is getting a bit of an upgrade with support for Adobe PDF files, making it easier to read and manage digital documents in a single piece of software.
