To help anyone else who is waiting, my details:

32Gb Black 4G/LTE
ordered 30 October
status showing 'Processing'
expected delivery: late November
location: North of England.

Hope this info might help others find their bearings.

Not complaining! Quite the contrary.
I only have one life!
mine was ordered one minute after preorders began. And exactly the same status as you, apart from the north of england bit

i still dont' think we'll see these until the week after next.

Disagree. They explicitly said LTE version available late November. If you don't get it late November, they've botched it.

Ideally, they'd have had them at launch, but heyho. I'm in the exact same stage as other LTE preorders btw, ordered by 0802 on launch day, and I'm certainly no Apple apologist.

Not been reading thread thoroughly, if people preordered wifi's at launch, promised delivery in first week and they're still waiting....THAT'S a botched launch.

yes perhaps I am being harsh but I think you might want to check out the LTE per-order thread, it looks like a disaster in comparison to previous launches.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Always find it hard to judge based on forums though, you never whether its a vocal minority or representative of everyone who's ordered. Fingers crossed for us Ukers eh

iPad mini LTE now showing 'dispatched'

Just an update (so that other UK iPad mini per-order people can see how the land lies)

Order status now showing: Dispatched
Delivery expected: 1 to 2 weeks
Estimated delivery dates: 30 November to 7 December

Seemingly, the fact that I am in the North of England (where most of us put ferrets down our trousers and eat bacon butties) has not much relevance.

That sounds sensible (confining brown sauce to your bacon butty).

I have misunderstood the notification from Apple.

The notification means

The order is stil being processed
Dispatch will take place in 1 to 2 weeks
Arrival expected between 30 November and 7 December.

(In other words, it has not actually shipped yet).

Now, where did I put my clogs? They were here a moment ago.

Does anyone know what my chances are of being able to walk into Sheffield Meadowhall store and pick up a 16GB black mini Monday next week? (or a black iPhone 5 16GB for that matter).
