Apple launching the iPad here in July. iBookstore to go live in Australia with their launch on 28 May. So it should be live here too come July, as Aus and NZ rights are often negotiated together (they are even managed by the same person at Apple Australia).

The prices are:

Wi-fi models
$A629 ($NZ756) for 16GB

$A759 ($NZ913) for 32GB

$A879 ($NZ1057) for 64GB for Wi-Fi models. 

Wi-Fi + 3G models
$A799 ($NZ961) for 16GB

$A928 ($NZ1116) for 32GB

$A1049 ($NZ1261) for 64G

Yeah, I just saw. It was early. Before coffee. Wouldn't have posted if I'd seen it. :)

Crap. Pre-orders of the iPad from Apple Australia are online only for delivery on the 28th - you can't pre-rder for in-store pickup like they did in the US.

I wonder how many units they'll have in the Sydney store, am looking at going over for the day to get one; I think I mentioned earlier my wife is a flight attendant so it costs bugger all to go over and back, and because the limit is still two per customer I could get one for someone else so let me know if you're interested - if there's a lot of interest I'll stick names in a hat and draw one out.

Does anyone know where we stand in NZ with warranty if a US purchased iPad breaks down the track within 1 year?

There may be a problem with parts, but Apple warranty is global. The service center may refuse to fix it though, seeing as there's no official supply in NZ yet.

Yes I've already had this query from a customer, it's not that we would refuse to honour the warranty, but due to Apple's global warranty system, we are actually unable to order replacement iPads until the product is officially released in New Zealand.

Until then, please refer to your retailer :)

Cheers,
Joseph.

Yeah basically think of it as an unsupported system here at the mo'. Once the iPad is on sale it will be supported and should be covered by the global warranty. So just make sure your iPad doesn't go bust until July ;-)

Remember that if you purchase in NZ from a company seller, under the Consumer Guarantees Act they must provide warranty service; makes no difference whether they can do that easily or not, but they MUST, and cannot contract out of it.

Ah, yes, I didn't get that part... You are out of luck until Apple sells the unit in NZ.

Sweetness, so it's covered after July. Confirmed by Apple support in the mean time while I awaited replies here. Thanks all.
