SYDNEY, NSW: With Apple finally set to unveil the iPad in Australia this Friday, the company has announced that it will open a new retail store in Bondi Junction to coincide with the release.
In anticipation of a sales rush with the iPad release, the new store on Oxford Street is set to open its doors at 8:00am Friday morning.
The extra outlet will be welcome news to Australian customers who have already had to wait longer than expected for the iPad, with Apple delaying the release after what it called overwhelming demand in the US.
