So I visited a local reseller here in Singapore today to see and feel the ipad air and was quite surprised to see that there was no queue and hardly anyone was buying the air. And you can easily go and test it as no people were jostling to take turns. In the end I still preferred the mini so I'll wait for the retina version. I was ready to buy the 64gb but I guess the thought that I could get it at anytime swayed my decision. Hope all others who wanted one got one.
