Hear that rumble coming from the far east? That’s the sound of Apple shuttering it’s online stores in the Asian markets in preparation for the launch of online ordering for the iPad Air!
The first online orders are already live in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, as Apple had notified its Australian customers that orders would begin at 2:01AM Australian Easter Standard time.
Customers in other markets should start getting their rest, as similar overnight launches will take place there, with Apple telling UK customers their order window would open at 12:01AM British Summer Time, and U.S. customers should be prepared for a go at 12:01AM Pacific Time. (3:01AM Eastern Time.)
What’s more, as 9to5Mac notes, the device has already sold out online in the Hong Kong online store – although supplies are expected to generally be quite plentiful in most regions.
We’ll let you know as soon as sales officially begin in the U.S. and Canada!
