New iPad Goes On Sale 8am Friday In Australia

Apple has confirmed that the on-sale time for the new iPad will be 8am this Friday — a switch from the iPad 2 onsale, which happened at 5pm Australian time. Given that online orders are subject to shipping delays, buying in-store is probably going to prove popular.

While there are bound to be large queues at the major Apple store locations, you might get a machine more quickly via a dealer or other retailer. There will also be contract offers from Telstra, Optus and Vodafone, though only Vodafone has released pricing details so far. Update: Now Telstra has too.

Planning on joining a queue? Already got one on order? Happy to wait a few weeks? Tell us your strategy in the comments.
