Apple has announced that their retail stores will be opening at 8AM local time on November 1 for the iPad Air launch.
That’s one hour earlier than the regular opening time and a pretty normal tactic for Apple stores on iDevice launch days.
Since there no pre-orders being taken for the iPad Air, lines at stores will likely be a bit longer than in past years- though this may be less of an issue if other retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and cellular carriers have good supplies of the iPad Air available on release day.
I’ve been out in the wee hours of the morning for all of the previous iPad launches and I’ll be doing the same for the iPad Air launch. How about you all – are you planning to be out early looking to get an iPad Air on November 1?
