TechBytes: One Million iPads

VIDEO: Apple sold over a million iPads in less than a month.

Apple's iPad has had a stronger start than the iPhone. Apple says it has sold 1 million of its new tablet computers. It took just 28 days to reach that milestone, less than half the 74 days it took to sell the first 1 million iPhones. Demand for the device has been so strong in the United States that Apple has delayed its international launch.

Review: 'Bruce Lee: Dragon Warrior'

One of the new games for the iPad that's getting good reviews is "Bruce Lee: Dragon Warrior." It is a fighting game that lets you play as the martial arts master. "The really interesting thing about the game is how great it looks, the fact that you can get this kind of 3-D graphics on even an iPad is impressive," CNET's Dan Ackerman said.

He even compared the images on the iPad to a very basic Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 fighter game. He said, it's "not quite up to that high-definition living room quality level, but as far as portable games goes, I don't think we've seen anything that looks this good."

As far as the actually game play, Ackerman said, "It's just a lot of fun. You won't find it too challenging, you'll be able to move through the game, and make progress and unlock new stuff."

The game sells for $4.99.
