We’re seeing reports this morning that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will become available for digital download on 1 April (just under a month from now). While these reports are coming out of the US, it is possible that this release date will apply to the Australian digital outlets as well, with Google’s Play Store having had a Pre-Order option available for some time now for $19.99.

The in-home trailer, which you can watch above, brings back all the memories of the film, and though not everyone enjoyed the next instalment in the long-running sci-fi franchise, I for one will be waiting to download it as soon as I can.

From what we understand, the DVDs will be available in US retailers from 5 April, including some special offers for Target, Walmart and Best Buy customers.

A quick look on some Australian retailers pages confirms the Autumn release for us is likely, so 1 April could well be for us too. Let’s see what happens.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.
