There are quite a few people already in Australia that have already managed to get their new iPads via the normal retail channels - the embargo was set to 12:01 Friday, and some stores here are open 24 hours, so a few really keen people rocked up and purchased. It seems it’s limited to BigW (General Merch business of Woolworths in Australia), and they’re discounting the prices compared to Apple Retail. I’m getting mine in about 8 hours though!!
