Apple iPad Air goes on sale today in 42 countries, basic price goes from $498 in Canada to $659 in Germany
Apple's stylish new iPad Air is up for grabs, starting today, in 42 countries around the globe. The 7.5mm thin and super light slate can be ordered for $499 in the US with the lowest memory configuration of 16 GB and Wi-Fi connectivity only.

Things get a bit hairy from there, as the Wi-Fi + cellular connectivity versions start you off from $629 for the 16 GB one, and crawl up to the whopping $929 for the 128 GB iPad Air with 4G LTE modem. Hey, the new iPads support the most LTE networks of any device globally, so if you tend to globetrot with your tablet, you might want to take notice.

In Europe in general and Germany in particular, the cheapest iPad Air will run you EUR 479 ($659), and the most expensive goes for EUR 885 ($1197). Oddly enough, the European versions seem to be the most expensive in USD equivalent, while in countries like Japan the iPad Air costs as much as in the US. Your best bet is Canada, where the new iPad costs 498 USD.

Here's the full list of countries where you can go out to your local Apple store or distributor, and get an iPad Air today: 


Check out some of the prices in those countries in the slideshow below, starting with the most expensive.

Apple fans, the last 14% that contributed to Apple massive profit. Apple would be lost without you. Stay strong and compete aggressively with Samsung. Samsung need to be reminded that we expect good specifications and strong support especially timely updates. 4.4...4.4...4.4

They convienently forgot to mention the whole story, "Apple iPad Air goes on sale today, iPad mini 2 nowhere in sight" a new report surfaced today saying that the situation might be even worse than previously expected. The info comes from China and says that one of the two iPad mini 2 screen suppliers (LG Display) is having huge issues with the production and Apple was even forced to turn to Samsung to save the day. However, even so, full production is reportedly not coming until we are "well into next year". iPad mini 2 screen suppliers (LG Display) is having huge issues with the production and Apple was even forced to turn to Samsung to save the day.

Just got my iPad air, for the 12 hours, trying all the stuff out. comparing to my iPad mini, it's fast alright and the display is awesome, the colors are ver accurate. For now I would say, this is the best tablet in the market, but this might change when the nexus 10 comes out.
