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.
