    As expected and as mentioned previously, Apple began accepting pre-orders for the iPad mini and the iPad 4 via their online store at midnight Pacific Time. Initial stock usually gets sold out quickly. Did you pre-order one of the new iPads? If so, share which color, what capacity, and which carrier you got your model in in the comments below.

    As per the usual with products being sold out, the 16 GB white iPad mini (Wi-Fi only) sold out in 17 minutes (in the U.S.). The current wait period for this make and model is already set back to a 2 week delay. As of the time of writing this, the black iteration of the same model is still available for a November 2 shipping date.

    The Wi-Fi models come out on November 2nd with cellular models hitting the shelves a couple of weeks after. Apple will of course be offering the iPad mini in retail stores on launch day as well so if you still want a white iPad mini, you might have some luck hitting the stores. We have no idea what the lines might be like but if previous Apple launches are any indication, you might want to get on that line sooner rather than later.

    Ordered the white 64gb wifi only at 6:30am EST. Says 2 week delivery. They said that for iPhone 5 too but I got it the day it went on sale in stores which was a week later. They lie.

    Its not sold out if its still orderable, if it was sold out it would say on backorder or "sold out". Also if you would take just a second and open your calendar you would see that Nov 2nd is 2 weeks away, which is when it ships.

    It's not for you then. It's for the people who don't have one, like my twin brother who just sold his immaculate iPod Touch 4G to buy an iPod Touch 5G, then canceled the order before they shipped to buy this. Every time someone complained about people reporting unconfirmed iPad mini news, he rolled his eyes because it actually HELPED him and allowed him to make a good decision. His iPod was immaculate because it was never taken outside his apartment and used almost exclusively as a home theater PC remote, which the iPad mini suits even better.

    Edit: He ordered white, BTW.
