The telco was the first to release iPad Air pricing yesterday, the new 20% thinner 9.7" Apple tablet, which goes on sale tomorrow.  

"Demand for the iPad Air has been strong" a Telstra spokesperson told Smarthouse. 


"We expect the iPad Air to be a popular product with customers when it goes on sale this Friday."

Figures from IHS today show Apple's share of the tablet market fell 13% year on year, as Samsung, Asus and Lenovo - based Android tabs all increased share, last quarter.

Lenovo's Yoga tablet is shortly to go on sale in JB Hi-Fi - its first consumer tablet to be sold in OZ.
