Earlier today, customers in Asia and Australia got their hands on the iPad Air, which have already been unboxed. Apple retail stores are set to open at 8AM local time for the iPad Air launch.

Most resellers such as Future Shop and Best Buy will also be open at 8AM local time; both stores will also be launching a new iPad trade-in program, set to go live on their websites early in the AM. You can also find the iPad Air at Staples, Walmart, London Drugs and basically any Apple reseller. Best to make some calls or use the app TalkTo to do it for you.

If you are staying up to order online from, be sure to download the Apple Store iOS app to place your order as it’s easier and faster than ordering on the web.
