Update: Best Buy informs us that they will not be giving away any special prizes to iPad customers.
On Saturday morning, Best Buy announced that they will open their stores at 8 a.m. Friday, November 1, in order to sell the new iPad Air. They will sell it on a first-come first-serve basis. They are expected to have a limited supply at each store. According to Los Angeles Industry Analyst Paul Mueller, Best Buy will be giving away a special prize to their iPad customers, but he isn't sure exactly what the prize will be.
Best Buy isn't the only store opening early to sell the iPad Air. Apple Store retail locations, of course, will have more stock of the hotly-anticipated device. However, they will also have bigger lines. Besides being kind to customers, Apple Store retail locations likely won't be giving away any special prizes.
The iPad Air will have a much thinner design, weighing only 1 pound. It will have a 9.7-inch 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution screen (264 pixels-per-inch) with a blazing fast A7 processor. It will also have stereo speakers -- a feature that many have begged for since the first iPad arrived on the scene in 2010. Do you plan to purchase an iPad Air? Tell us in the Comments section.
