iPad Air goes on sale, iPad mini to launch on November 21

|By:, SA News Editor

Apple's (AAPL) iPad Air has gone on sale in stores across Asia, with countries in Europe and North America following or set to follow.

Hundreds of people are reported to have queued up outside shops in Tokyo and Sydney, although the commencement of sales doesn't seem to have generated the media interest that previous Apple devices attracted.

The launch date of the new iPad mini will apparently be on November 21 - Target has listed the date on its Web site and put up a spec sheet for the tablet.
