Bought 2 black 16 GB WiFi only for my daughters this morning.

[seinfeld ] And what's with the term "Pre-order"?
I ordered.
Before I ordered, I was pre-ordering, but as soon as I pressed OKAY, I was no longer pre-ordering [ /seinfeld]

Not according to the Apple Website. If you click on Black WiFi only, all capacities still show 11/2 delivery. I didn't check any further.

Apple started pre-orders for the iPad mini and 4th Generation iPad early this morning at 3AM Eastern / 12AM Pacific. As noted in our forums, the initial stock of White iPad minis sold out quickly in the U.S. Within the first 17 minutes, ship dates for the white iPad mini slipped to 2 weeks from the original "Delivers 11/2". The black Wi-Fi iPad mini remains available for delivery by November 2nd.

Of course, its hard to tell how much of the stock out is related to high demand vs. low supply. We suspect stocks may have been low as others have noted that countries outside the U.S. listed "2 week" delivery times from the first moment the white iPad minis went on sale.

As typical, Apple will also offer the iPad mini in retail stores on launch day. Apple keeps a sizable stock of devices to be available on the official launch day of products. The Wi-Fi iPad mini will be available in retail stores starting on November 2nd. Meanwhile, the cellular version is promised by mid-November.

I didn't go the iPad Mini route; I got a white 32GB iPad 4 to replace my iPad 1. Another seamless preorder experience!

I really don't need another iDevice, so I'll blacklist the website and ban myself from the Apple Store by trying to shop naked, I really need to save my money.

In six months, Apple will have an "iPad Mini 2" with the guts of the 3. Maybe then I'll get one.

Re: [iPad] Who pre-ordered?

I would normally update every other year but someone already wants to buy my iPad 3 for more than I paid for it new last march.
Not selling it until I am sure I can transfer my AT&T grandpa unlimited to the iPad 4.
Looks like it arrives Nov. 26.

So, I wonder what mega-numbers we'll be hearing about regarding sales in a few days? Just reading a few random reports, the lines around the stores just weren't there. I am sure there are as many reports saying the demand has been unimaginably massive and they're going to have to mine metals on Mars to keep up.

I personally feel Apple missed the boat on smaller tablets and their pricing, even considering it's Apple is a joke.

Any predictions?

I bet they did great none the less. It's cold out and the weather (on the east coast in particular) was less than ideal so a lot of people probably just ordered online.

If the unit were priced $299 I bet Apple would have blown it out of the water.

My pre-order iPad Minis, which last week became an order and simultaneously became pre-delivered finally got here yesterday... so it's now pre-opened as I've pre-gifted it to my daughters.
As soon as they open, it, it will become pre-owned to a future owner

Even though it weighs 3x the iPhone 5 it really isn't at all noticeable. In fact, given how much larger than the iPhone 5 it is your brain is almost tricked into feeling it's lighter because you're expecting so much more bulk.

The screen is noticeably not retina, but that's the only negative thing I've noticed at all so far.

Maybe my eyes are really bad, but I loved the display of iPad (gen 1). When I got gen 3, I noticed it was better, but it wasn't like going from black and white to a plasma HDTV.
To me, it was a step up a nicer image, but the non-retina display is not a huge negative (on the Mini). ...IMHO

Fed Ex Mini LTE delivery attempt at my mountain condo yesterday before I could get there. Will get it Monday. Fed Ex had it in China the day before and it's already here.

Hopefully my A6X will be here early then. I lost my 3rd gen last week and ordered a 4th gen as a replacement. But of course it is scheduled for delivery at my office the Friday after Thanksgiving. I really don't want roll in just to wait on Fedex nor do I want to wait more than a week for my shipment.

FedEx in your area may allow you to change the delivery address/site, including to a local FedEx store with later hours than is available for home delivery (if you have those).

I do this all the time online.

My 16GB VZ model was delivered yesterday morning.

It had to pass Cat Inspection first



Everything about the mini is amazing, except for the screen. I'm pretty disappointed by it. I haven't decided if I'm going to return it yet, though.

I was able to cut down my iPad 2 AT&T Micro SIM (which I've been using in my VZ iPad 3) and it works fine in the mini. Actually seeing better speeds on the mini than I was on the iPad 3.
