First Look Videos Show iPad Air Launch Experience and Deboxing

Apple's iPad Air has already gone on sale in multiple countries around the world, including Australia, where Ben Pasternak waited in line to get one of the new ultrathin tablets and filmed his Apple Store launch day experience.


After receiving his iPad Air, Pasternak also filmed an unboxing, giving the world a glimpse of an iPad Air out in the wild. Like other iPads, the iPad Air comes packaged in a sleek white box.


While the iPad Air has already launched in several countries like Australia and Singapore, additional countries across Europe will be able to purchase the tablet in a few short hours. In the United States and Canada, online orders will begin at 12:01 AM Pacific Time with retail sales commencing at 8 AM local time.

Not this bloody kid again. Shouldn't he be doing his homework instead of pretending he knows about technology? I don't bash Apple but if you think owning a ton of Apple products and being able to utter the words 'RAM' and 'Gigabyte' makes you a technology genius, think again.

They seem to make a big deal about the first buyer at these apple launches. Do they get anything free or just the embarrassement?

Just watched the top video: Good for the kid and anyone else who enjoys that sort of store experience, but jesus does that seem massively ********g embarrassing. It's enough to make me want to wait for the following weekend to visit the store to see the product.

so now we celebrate some spoiled kid spending parent money on an unnecessary gadget? Good lord how we've descended as a nation. That was worth recording and posting? I'm signing off for now in disgust.

I don't know anything about this kid, but who cares what he does? The bigger the age difference between you and him, the sadder this reply seems.

And THIS is what gives apple users a bad name. Every year, every single year. Celebrating waiting days/weeks in line for a product that is only a slight variation of last years product.


It is people who can't let others enjoy their life in their own way which is sad.

So what if someone likes Star Trek, My Little Pony, One Direction, whatever it is, and you don't ? Let them have their fun, leave them alone, and you enjoy what you enjoy.

It's sad the hate some people have over other people's joy.

And just because one person expresses their joy of Apple products one way does not mean all other Apple purchasers feel the same.
