Frantic buying at Ostores worldwide has seen the Opad outstrip iPod's first day sales record by more than 50, or perhaps even 500, to one.
Recently appointed Chief Finance Officer of Ostores Inc, Mr Barnaby Joyce, said that while sales figures from some more remote stores in Mongolia and The Andes are still to come in, he expects the first day sales of Opads to be close to 5 million but that figure could actually be 5 billion or even 5 trillion, he isn't entirely sure.
"I will know more accurately when I get my head around the numbers and numbers in general, " he said.
Whatever the final number, the sales mean that the Opad has been an outstanding success.
Meanwhile Chairman of Ostores Inc, Dr O. None has cautioned users from using their new Opads whilst driving. It is reported that many hundreds of users have been issued with fines by highway patrol police for excitedly talking, texting, emailing or astral travelling on their Opads while driving.
Dr None cautions that apart from the financial slug of a hefty fine, astral travelling while driving can be quite dangerous.
"If there is an unexpected break in resonance between the Opad and its partner, then the user's spirit may seek to return to a position which he/she has moved on from- ie outside the vehicle," he warned.
"Until users are experienced, it is better to explore the more high-tech applications in the lounge room, rather than the car," he said.
