At Apple’s (AAPL) event this morning to announce “the next generation of the most advanced mobile operating system in the world,” Steve Jobs took the stage promptly and fired off some impressive iPad numbers. As of today, the company has sold 450,000 iPads–300,000 on the first day. There have been 600,000 iBooks and 3.5 million iPad apps downloaded so far.
