“Eager technology fans braved lines at Apple stores around the world to snag the company’s latest iPad tablet,” Brett Molina reports for USA Today.

“The iPad Air launched in 42 countries including the U.S. on Friday,” Molina reports. “Videos from several store launches including Sydney, Tokyo and Amsterdam have been popping up on YouTube.”

Molina reports, “The 9.7-inch iPad Air is 20% thinner than the previous model, and weighs only one pound. It features the zippier A7 processing chip as well as the M7 coprocessor, both of which are found in Apple’s iPhone 5s.”

    1. I was going to do this until i realized you still had to buy a plan. the cheapest is the on demand plan for $10 per month. I’m not going to pay $120 per year for a device even if i don’t use their cell service. going to buy the wifi model

    2. The thing is if you go on T-mobiles site and try to order the Ipad Air you have to sign up for a Demand plan which costs $10 a month. So that 200mb and free financing actually cost $10 a month.
