If you want to snag a brand-new iPad Air this Friday, but you're not particularly keen on standing in line all night, there may be hope. MacRumors is reporting that a source gave them the news that Personal Pickup will be available for the sleek new product, so you should be able to reserve an iPad Air when they go on sale at 12:01 AM Pacific Time and pick it up later that day without standing in line.
MacRumors notes that it appears that there are no supply constraints for the iPad Air, while the Retina iPad mini is expected to be in short supply until early 2014.
Pricing for the iPad Air starts at US$499 for the 16 GB WiFi model, increasing by $129 for a cellular model and by $100 for each jump in storage to 32, 64 or 128 GB.
