Apple announced today that it has now sold more than 100 million iPads around the world, a feat that makes the iPad far and away the best-selling tablet ever.

“Two weeks ago, we sold our 100 millionth iPad,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said at event today in San Jose, Calif.

Apple used the event to announce the iPad Mini, which everyone and their mom expected, and the new fourth-generation iPad. The Mini starts at $330m and the iPad starts at $500 like previous full-size iPads.

With those two new models on hand, how soon before Apple hits 200 million iPads?
