Apple iPad Air seeing pre-launch price-cut at Walmart
You might recall that Walmart offered pre-launch day discounts on the Apple iPhone 5s ($189) and the Apple iPhone 5c ($79). Now, something similar is happening with the Apple iPad Air. The next iteration of Apple's full-sized 9.7 inch tablet, the iPad Air is smaller, lighter and thinner than its predecessor, but brings the power with a 64-bit A7 processor.

Well, guess which retailer has started wielding a scissor to cut the price of the iPad Air? If you guessed Walmart, you're absolutely correct. The discounter has taken $20 off the price of the slab which brings it down to $479 for the 16GB Wi-Fi version. It is not yet known if the discount will apply to other versions of the Apple iPad Air offered by Walmart. The tablet will launch in the U.S. on November 1st.

Granted, $20 off the price of an iPad Air is not like $20 off the Apple iPhone 5c, but it is still $20 that will go into your pocket instead of Walmart's coffers. Considering that other retailers, like Best Buy, will price-match, you don't necessarily have to shop at Walmart in order to score the $20 discount. On the other hand, Walmart is expected to offer a tablet trade-in deal. So if you're planning on getting rid of your old slate, you might want to keep that in mind in deciding where to buy your new Apple iPad Air.
