This didn’t take long at all. It has just been announced that the iPad Air will have its official launch in Thailand on Friday 15th November 2013. This is only a few weeks after America. This will be the 5th iPad in the series. The new iPad Air is said to be “unbelievably thin and light”. For those that are interested, you can buy from “iStudio” stores across Thailand from next Friday. However, there are no prices yet and only the WiFi version will be available from these stores. Presumably you would have to buy the 4G/LTE versions from the main carriers. No news yet on that. Also, no news on the release date of the iPad Mini.
