While today is Nov 1 in the United States, yesterday was Nov 1 on the other side of the International Date Line, so Australia was one of the first countries to see the iPad Air go on sale. This video captures the experience of one of the first Australians to purchase the iPad Air and unbox it.

The iPad Air received praise from a number of journalists and reviewers this week. They were all impressed by how thin and light the iPad Air is. It is as thin as a pencil and as light as a package of butter—while packing a desktop-level processing punch and more than ten hours of battery life. It really is an awesome piece of engineering and design.
The iPad Air goes on sale today in the United States and Apple retail stores opened today at 8 a.m., one hour earlier than usual in anticipation of a sales crush. Apple's web site offers Personal Pickup with sales of iPad Air, so you can order online and pick it up at a local Apple retail store when it is convenient. Walmart also began sales of the iPad Air today with a $20.00 discount.
