iPad mini shipping time for various models hits 2 weeks already

iPad mini shipping time for various models hits 2 weeks alreadyEarlier today I penned Five reasons why the iPad mini sucks, but don’t let me put you off. I’m just teasing. Mostly.

One of the criticisms of the iPad mini is the higher-than-expected price, with the 16GB Wi-Fi only model starting at £269 - £110 more than the 16GB Amazon Kindle Fire. However, that hasn’t stopped an iPad mini pre-order frenzy, with the shipping time for many models already hitting 2 weeks.

Glancing at Apple UK at the time of writing, you’ll have to wait up to 2 weeks for all white & silver Wi-Fi only iPad mini models, so that’s the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.

The black & slate is seemingly less popular (or maybe there are just less of them), as only the 16GB Wi-Fi only iPad mini is affected. The 32GB and 64GB equivalents, on the other hand, are available for delivery on November 2 “in most areas” (that’s a new one).

EDIT: yep, all iPad mini Wi-Fi only shipping times have now hit 2 weeks.

Meanwhile, all Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad minis – regardless of colour or capacity – will be dispatched in “Late November”.

Anyone here pre-order an iPad mini? I know a few people had expressed an interest prior to launch.

Or it's just the standard ploy.
Just like ipad3 was available in stores with no issues and lo and behold suddenly no problems buying iphone. Still, keep up the advertising

Or maybe they just changed the dispatch date? You know like you'd assume for any other company launching any other product.

Any tablet under 10 inches is no good, so maybe they won't even release it.

Preordered at 8.01am for the wife. She wants to replace her Acer A100 as it's, in her words, 'a piece of s***'
Little tip for Apple preorders, use the iOS store app rather than the website. The app is usually up and running well before the website and doesn't slow down as much.

Preordered at 8.01am for the wife...Thank Christ for that, you must have been really afraid they were going to run out, to order an untested piece of hardware after nothing more than a PR announcement

You obviously aren't married Barry.
'Sorry dear, I couldn't order that thing you've been going on and on about for six months as I went on the website at 8.05 and they had all sold out'
Good luck with that if you want a quiet life
