I wish I could pre-order. Japan does not have the cellular models up for pre-order since the initial announcement. We're starting to get closer and closer to the mid-november range. I wonder if Japan will get it later than the rest of the world...

Here is what the iPad mini page looks like in Japan.

I may just try to go to Hong Kong or Korea if we don't get it soon.

Just tried to check my order status on the apple website. It says:

"We're sorry, but our Order Status services are extremely busy right now. Please try again later"

Could this mean that they are updating the shipping dates for all cellular orders?

Same thing here. I was able to get in a minute ago but not now. Let's hope this means the Ipad 4 LTE release date is updating or better yet some Ipad 4 lte shipping

December's doable provided none of us 'colonist' gets it in our heads to dump all the iPad mini's headed to England into Boston Harbor

cheers!

Also waiting on the Black iPad Mini 16 GB Verizon LTE still says Mid November. I can't wait for these hopefully 4G LTE screaming speeds. I have seen anywhere from 10 MPS to 30 MPS down on the full size iPad 3 or 4, depending on where you are and how crowded the network is at the time!

Here's hoping the iPad M will get the same screaming speeds!

New word, iPad M = iPad mini! Too lazy to type 3 more characters in all these post so this is how I will be referring to it in the future post

iPad M!

I would bet the Apple is not giving us a hard ship/delivery date as they likely do not know the exact date themselves. I would also think they should be getting darn close to knowing soon. I await my iPad 4 LTE with great excitement.

I'm predicting they ship to us by the 16th

This is just based on past experience, action on my credit card, and a discussion with Apple. In the past, the week that my ipad, iphone, etc. shipped, a minimal charge hit my card. That just happened this morning. In a chat with Apple Store, I asked the Apple Rep "with Thansgiving coming up here in the US, what is the likelyhood that orders will ship out for delivery that week." He told me that Apple is known for under promising and over delivering, however he could not guarantee anything. He said that he would think they would deliver the 3rd week of November, which would be next week.

Based on past experience, I would not be surprised to see something regarding shipping perhaps as early as tomorrow, with arrival by the 16th. Once again, this is just based on prior experience. I could be very wrong.

I just called, and they said no. Of course your mileage may very depending on who you talk to.

My Ipad 4 says 23rd ? This is my first Ipad so I am not too familiar with the ipad shipping.


Will I get my Ipad 4 lte before it's in stores also is there a chance it will come before that date ? I ordered mine the second the Apple store was updated. I just sat there and hit reload

Seems like the Australian store is finally updating their order status service.

EDIT: nvm, it's back and still lists a vague 'Late November'

Delivery changed from the 21st to the 16th!

Had to call and change my shipping from standard to overnight. Unfortunately, couldn't get the free upgrade, but shipping winds up only being $12. Well worth the time savings of checking my order status every hour until the 21st!

How did you manage to do that? I thought they weren't letting people upgrade?
