back to article Fanbois will get wet queuing for iPad 3

Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne and Brisbane each have a better than 75% chance of rain on 16 March, the day Apple will put the new iPad (which our US bureau covers in magnificent detail) on sale in its Australian retail stores.

Supposed 4G incompatibility in Australia? Or Telstra strikes again?

Just heard on the radio that the 4G version is not coming to Australia. TBC

Won't make any difference in Newcastle

Both the Fanboi stores in the North East are inside shopping malls.

What I want to know is what happened to Geordieland, around five years ago there wasn't even a Starbucks and now they're every other shop and there are two Apple stores.

I blame the X-Factor. (May as well.)
