Apple Store 2.0 gets official: interactive iPads replace paper signs, more

No comments:



Our sources nailed it. What is being referred to as Apple Store 2.0 internally has officially launched Down Under. Australia is close to a day ahead of us in the United States. Just like we told you, paper signs and information cards have been swiped from Apple’s wood tables and have been replaced with super-interactive iPad 2s. These specially equipped tablets provide a simple and easy-use-view into the product right beside it.

Additionally, the iPads feature a button to call an Apple representative for assistance – sort of like an airplane call button.That’s all we’ve been able to find so far, but given that our sources nailed that part 100% – it won’t be too long until we see the other changes.

Snow Leopard supplies run short in Australia/NZ. Lion coming soon?

No comments:



We’re getting tips from our retail friends in the South Pacific that Snow Leopard boxes are running short and the channel inventory is drying up. Apple resellers are literally unable to ge their hands on stock of Snow Leopard boxes.

Even Apple’s website is showing a week’s wait in both Australia and New Zealand. These types of sporadic delays, which are frequently temporary, are usually an indication that the supply channel is changing and the boxes are no longer being made.

Obviously, this could point to an upcoming Lion release as early as next month at Apple’s WWDC, if not sooner. The latest build, Lion Preview 3, has been largely stable and there have been signs that Apple could even demonstrate Lion in Apple Stores next week as part of their Apple Store 2.0 initiative.
