NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- In a surprise move, Apple (AAPL) began selling its new iPad Mini Retina Display online as of midnight on Monday.

TheStreet's Brittany Umar said the initial launch was previously unknown, but Apple had said it would be sometime "later in November." After the launch date was leaked, Apple decided to start selling the iPads now. 

Currently, the new iPad is available in Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, Singapore and the United States, she added. Depending on the version, it should ship within 10 business days. 

In other tech news, Google  (GOOG) Glass will feature music capabilities, Umar said. Users can search, stream, and get suggestions for music via voice command through Google's Play application. 

Specifically designed headphones will allow users to listen to the music, she concluded.
