Shipping estimates (http://store.apple.com/us/buy/home/shop_ipad/family/ipad_mini) for the iPad mini have fallen to one week in Apple's online stores for the United States and Canada, indicating that Apple is beginning to approach a supply-demand balance for the device that launched just over a month ago. Estimates in the company's online stores for other countries remain at two weeks, but those will likely move to the new one-week estimate fairly soon.

Apple is beginning to catch up with demand on the iPhone 5 (http://www.macrumors.com/2012/12/03/iphone-5-shipping-estimates-continue-to-improve/) and iPad mini, as evidenced by shortening shipping estimates, although estimates on the new iMac are rapidly slipping (http://www.macrumors.com/2012/11/30/shipping-estimates-for-new-27-inch-imac-already-slip-to-3-4-weeks/) following its introduction last week. Apple and supply chain sources (http://www.macrumors.com/2012/11/28/new-imac-and-ipad-mini-to-be-in-short-supply-until-2013/) have indicated that stocks of the iMac and iPad mini will remain constrained into 2013.

Was in the APPLE store the other day at around 7PM, and they had quite a few WiFi units in both Slate and White, in 16GB as well as 32GB versions.

I think demand for the mini would be greater if it had a retina display. Maybe we'll get a retina mini sooner than October 2013, maybe the first half of 2013.

That's not what Anandtech is saying and they know a lot in hardware.

I picked up a 32gb black mini last night @6pm. They didn't have that many, but best bet is to drop into a retail store.

Apple has to deliver a retina iPad mini in 2013 because what else will drive sales with the 2nd gen iPad mini but a display that matches what other iOS devices and the competition offer?
