Just got my iPad mini at Walmart!

Got it today in exchange for my Nexus 7 16gb version. I went in to exchange for the 32gb Nexus 7 and saw the iPad mini instead and got that. I got the black 16gb iPad mini.

First impressions is that it is indeed a little fat like what the reviews said. I can hold it with my thumb and two fingers and the rest sitting on the back. It's comfortable to hold IMO. The Nexus 7 is more natural to hold and the display is more crisp on the Nexus but the Mini's not bad.

edit - here's proof!

edit 2 - I'm at school so I can't post any pics up. Will do when I get home in a couple hours.

edit - ok finally back home from school. ...And yes, I only had my iPad mini to take a picture.

Really? Not doubting some guy that started a thread and hasn't even replied in it except for the initial post? Ok.

OP could be telling the truth. The employee probably didn't know the iPad Mini comes out on Friday and just sold it.

LOL

He has time to photograph and then photoshop details off of a receipt, but doesn't have time to take a photo of the mini?

I've got a bridge in London that I'm trying to sell, any takers?

This. Hell, you can return a broken laptop and get a refund at Walmart, even if you dropped it in front of them. Lol.

The person that sold it to him probably had a Assistant Manager or Co-Manager/Manager override.

I don't see why it matters if he did or did not get it. If he did, good for him. If he didn't, then he's a liar. Either way it doesn't matter. I couldn't care less if he received it even though I won't receive mine until Friday...lol.
