TORONTO – Apple aficionados are lining up again this morning as the company’s newest tablet goes on sale.

The new iPad, as it’s officially called, was available starting at 8:00 this morning at Apple’s almost two dozen Canadian stores.

Other retailers, including Future Shop, are also planning to open early to cater to the lines of Apple fans desperate to get their hands on the new tech toy.

The cheapest WiFi-only model goes for $519, while the most expensive version, which can access mobile networks and has 64 gigabytes of storage, sells for $849.

Those who can’t find one of the new iPads in stores today may have to wait a while to buy one.

Apple says online orders cannot be filled for another two or three weeks.
