The iPad Air 2 tablets might be cranking along steadily for sale on Wal-Mart’s iPad Air 2 best sellers page – available for pickup in most stores by October 31 or arrival as early as October 29 for those who order tablets like the Apple iPad Air 2 64GB Wi-Fi gold options for $599 – or whichever other iPad Air 2 models, like the silver-colored Apple iPad Air 2 128GB Wi-Fi, are available to be added to online carts for $699 and rushed to homes by the promised date.
However, the buzz online today involves another viral “bendgate” video as reported by MTV. That’s where a YouTube video titled “iPad Air 2 Bend Test” has gone viral, with German-based user Marvin Macht making a cringe-worthy, yet delightful video of himself placing his new iPad Air 2 in his hands and bending with his thumbs until the thin iPad Air 2 cracks into pieces. Having racked up more than 1.28 million views on the video, that iPad Air 2 destroyer has also earned more thumbs down votes than thumbs up votes, no doubt from users who hate to see a brand new iPad Air 2 destroyed so readily.
So while CBS News is calling the iPad Air 2 the best iPad that Apple has ever made, no doubt due to the thinness and fingerprint scan features of the new iPad Air 2 tablets, and Amazon customers are racking up the iPad Air 2 accessories, YouTube viewers are marveling over the video that poses a danger to any iPad Air 2 users that try to emulate the process of cracking an iPad Air 2 in half. Shattered glass from the iPad Air 2 flies everywhere in the video, which is filmed from a variety of angles.
Amazingly, Marvin reports that his iPad Air 2 still works after he has nearly cracked the iPad Air 2 in half.
Meanwhile, in the midst of this iPad Air 2 bending melee, AT&T users are noticing that their Apple SIM cards can only be used with AT&T.
“When you choose AT&T on iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, AT&T dedicates Apple SIM to their network only,” the Inquisitr reports regarding Apple’s support section verbiage about the iPad Air 2. “If your Apple SIM becomes dedicated to a specific network and you want to choose from other carrier programs, you can purchase a new Apple SIM from an Apple Retail store.”
