    Just to up the ante, they released their pre-order pages (Register your interest pages) already via Twitter.

    iPad Air - globe.com.ph
    iPad mini - globe.com.ph

    So, any takers?

    EDIT: Sir denpacs, care to bump the links to your main post? Thanks!

    Guys, reg of interest is NOT the same as pre-order. It does not guarantee that a unit will be reserved for you on Dec 19. Purpose of reg of interest is to get your details so you'll be one of the first to be informed as to where it will be available.

    It will be on a first come first served basis. :) strictly no reservations.

    Yes there is. But it's cheaper than buying a unit only.
