At Apple Stores, we’ve heard that multiple large stores across the United States have already received upwards of 500-1000 units of the iPad Air, indicating that the supply of the new tablet will likely be plentiful at launch. We’ve heard similar from resellers of iPads internationally with some chains indicating that they will have a solid number of iPad Airs on tap for Friday. These stores say even more supply is promised for the next couple of weeks…
Notably, iPad Airs have already been spotted inside a glass case at Walmart. The retailer will be selling the device at a $20 discount making the 16GB iPad Air WiFi $479.
Apple will reportedly allow users to order their device online for in-store pickup after 12pm. In addition, the company is apparently allowing for business discounts on day one. This has not be the case for previous iPads.
